Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Auto Injury and How Chiropractic Therapy can Relieve You

Buffalo Thoracic Outlet Problems After an Auto Injury

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common condition after a car crash, and it's something that Buffalo Family Chiropractic Wellness, P. C. sees often in our Buffalo office. What causes thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury? How can chiropractic help?

The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These 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 damaged, 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.
