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

Jacksonville Thoracic Outlet Syndrome After an Auto Injury

We treat many car accident cases in in our Jacksonville office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Chiropractic care can be very helpful for thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes thoracic outlet syndrome and why chiropractic works.

The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they travel under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.

In a crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If damaged, 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
