Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Auto Accident and How Chiropractic Treatment can Relieve You

Texarkana, Atlanta Thoracic Outlet Problems After an Auto Accident

If you suffer from thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury, don't worry. Dr. Swanson sees this type of problem frequently in our Texarkana, Atlanta office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common condition after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you get better?

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 under and through 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
