If you are suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash, don't worry. Weary Chiropractic Clinic sees this type of problem frequently in our Prescott office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common problem after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help you get better?
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass 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 restricts 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.
