If you are suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash, don't despair. Frank Bendiks, DC, PC sees this type of condition very often in our Naperville, IL office. Let's see why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can help you heal.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass 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 crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
