Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Accidents
If you are dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision, you're not alone. Gadsden Family Chiropractic sees this type of condition frequently in our Gadsden, AL office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can 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 space, so they travel under and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts movement and puts stress on the tissues of the thoracic outlet. Pressure on the nerves can cause tingling or numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
