We treat many auto injury cases in in our Singapore office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's take a look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can help you heal.
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 travel underneath and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts motion 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
