Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Crashes

If you suffer from thoracic outlet syndrome after a car accident, don't worry. Dr. Endru sees this type of problem very often in our Sheboygan office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common symptom after a car accident? How can chiropractic care help you get better?

The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass under and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.

In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become inflamed and sore, 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
