We treat many car accident cases in in our Sunnyvale, CA office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help.
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 space, 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 swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits movement 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.
