Killeen Auto Injury Treatment: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Thoracic outlet syndrome is felt as numbness, prickling, soreness or decreased blood flow in the shoulders, arms or hands.
The thoracic outlet is a bottleneck where a vital bundle of major nerves and arteries pass between the head and arm. The space is tight and damage to the neck can cause swelling of the muscles in the region, which can then constrict the nerves and result in symptoms.
Because the neck is complex, it can be complicated identifying the exact origin of your pain, and other conditions can imitate the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
