Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Remond Weinberg sees often in our Atlanta, GA office. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can 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 space, so they travel underneath and between 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 motion and puts pressure 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.
