If you are suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision, don't worry. Dr. Michael Delson sees this type of problem frequently in our Springfield, MA office. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels 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 underneath and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become inflamed and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits motion 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
