If you are dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash, don't worry. Dr. Elganainy sees this type of problem frequently in our Burton, MI office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common symptom after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you heal?
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 crash, these muscle groups 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
