Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Auto Injury
We manage many auto injury cases in in our Rutland office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at how thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a crash and how Dr. Cyr can help you.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood 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 crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and tender, 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 pins and needles in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
