If you are dealing with thoracic outlet syndrome after a car accident, don't despair. Dr. Neil Scharf sees this type of problem frequently in our Parkland, FL office. Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at how thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a crash and how Dr. Neil Scharf can help you.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass 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 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.
