Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Isom sees frequently in our Lenexa office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at how thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a crash and how Dr. Isom can help you.
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 travel underneath and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts motion 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.
Chiropractic can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Dr. Isom will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve movement in your neck and shoulder.
