If you are dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash, don't despair. Dr. Marsh sees this type of condition very often in our West New York office. Chiropractic 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 nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of room, so they travel under and between 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 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
Chiropractic can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Dr. Marsh will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve function in your neck and shoulder.
