We work with many car accident cases in in our Smyrna, GA office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's see why thoracic outlet syndrome is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic care can help you get better.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they travel under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscles 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 pins and needles in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
