We manage many car accident cases in in our Clarksdale, Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch office, and a widespread 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 nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass underneath and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, 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 pins and needles in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
Chiropractic can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Dr. Kasprack will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve function in your neck and shoulder.
Let us help you recover from thoracic outlet syndrome. Dr. Kasprack has helped many patients with the same condition, and we can probably help you, too. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to establish the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
