If you are dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury, you're not alone. Spinal Health Chiropractic Center sees this type of condition frequently in our Largo office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after a car accident and see how chiropractic can help.
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 room, so they pass under 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 swollen 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
Chiropractic can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Spinal Health Chiropractic Center will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve function in your neck and shoulder.
