If you are dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome after a car accident, don't despair. Dr. Elganainy sees this type of problem very often in our Burton office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common symptom after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
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 room, so they travel underneath and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
