Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Accidents
If you are dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury, you're not alone. Dr. Alex Paulk sees this type of problem frequently in our Alpharetta, GA office. Your chiropractor can be very helpful for thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes thoracic outlet syndrome and why chiropractic works.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of room, so they pass under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which limits movement and puts stress 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
