Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Auto Accident and How Chiropractic Treatment can Support You

Stacy Thoracic Outlet Issues After a Car Crash

We work with many auto injury cases in in our Stacy office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. What causes thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury? How can chiropractic help?

The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of room, so they travel underneath and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.

In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts movement and puts pressure on the tissues of the thoracic outlet. Pressure on the nerves can cause tingling or pins and needles in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
