We work with many car accident cases in in our Springfield office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common symptom after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you recover?
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These 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 swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts movement and puts pressure 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 adjustments can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Dr. Delson will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve function in your neck and shoulder.
Dr. Delson is here in Springfield to help you recover from thoracic outlet syndrome. We've been helping patients for many years and we can probably help you, too. First, we'll do a careful examination to establish the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
