We work with many car accident cases in in our Beaverton, OR office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels 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 through 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 limits motion 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.
