Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Ashkan Aazami sees often in our Landover Hills, District Heights and Rockville, MD office. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at how thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a crash and how Dr. Ashkan Aazami can help you.
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 room, so they pass underneath and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits motion and puts pressure 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 adjustments can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Dr. Ashkan Aazami will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve function in your neck and shoulder.
If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're experiencing thoracic outlet syndrome, Dr. Ashkan Aazami is here to help.
