Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Crashes
We treat many car accident cases in in our Tulsa office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at how thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a crash and how Dr. Bogan can help you.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass 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 muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become inflamed and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
