If you have thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Robert Stein & Dr. Brian Lerman sees this type of condition very often in our Pikesville & Baltimore, MD office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an accident and see how chiropractic can help.
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 space, so they pass underneath and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and tender, 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
