Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after an auto collision, and it's something that Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes sees frequently in our State College office. What causes thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash? How can chiropractic help?
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel 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 muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and sore, 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
