Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Auto Injury
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common condition after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Louis Valentine sees often in our Beechmont, Ohio office. Let's take a look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
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 travel underneath and through 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 inflamed and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which limits motion 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.
