If you suffer from thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash, don't worry. Weary Chiropractic Clinic sees this type of condition very often in our Prescott office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common symptom after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you recover?
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of room, so they travel underneath and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and sore, 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
