If you suffer from thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury, don't worry. Dr. Bogan sees this type of condition very often in our Jenks office. What causes thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury? How can a chiropractor help?
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These 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 collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen 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 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 Dr. Bogan will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve movement in your neck and shoulder.
