Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after a car accident, and it's something that Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes sees often in our State College, PA office. The key to recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care 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 travel underneath and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which limits movement 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.
