We manage many auto injury cases in in our Tulsa office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic care can help you get better.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood 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 swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits movement 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
