Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Gugerli sees frequently in our Cary office. Let's take a look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help you recover.
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 pass underneath 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 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
