Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Sweeney Chiropractic sees frequently in our Nashville office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel 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 between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become inflamed and sore, 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
