We manage many auto injury cases in in our North County, St. Louis, MO office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Chiropractic care is a great way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at how thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a crash and how Dr. Mark Holland can help you.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of room, so they travel under and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and sore, 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
