Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after an auto collision, and it's something that Chanatry Chiropractic sees often in our Jacksonville office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision 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 crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
Chiropractic adjustments can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Chanatry Chiropractic will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve movement in your neck and shoulder.
