Anchorage Thoracic Outlet Issues After an Auto Injury

If you have thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury, you're not alone. Mulholland Chiropractic Center, LLC sees this type of condition frequently in our Anchorage office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common condition after an auto injury? How can your chiropractor help you heal?

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 room, so they pass under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.

In a collision, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and tender, 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.
