Holtsville Thoracic Outlet Issues After a Car Crash

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Cohen sees frequently in our Holtsville office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury and see how your chiropractor can 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 travel under and between 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.
