We work with many auto injury cases in in our Noblesville office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's see why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you recover.
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 underneath and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits motion and puts stress 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.
