Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Chiropractic
Many of our Schererville patients have been in a car crash, and thoracic outlet syndrome is something we see fairly often in these folks. Thoracic outlet syndrome is experienced as numbness, tingling, soreness or decreased circulation in the shoulders, arms or fingers.
The thoracic outlet is a narrow space where an important bundle of major nerves and arteries pass between the head and arm. The space is narrow and damage to the neck can cause irritation of the muscles in the region, which can then squeeze the nerves and result in symptoms.
Because the neck is complex, it can be complicated identifying the precise origin of your pain, and other disorders can imitate the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
If you've been in a motor vehicle accident and have signs of thoracic outlet syndrome, Dr. Benko is here to help. We can help establish the underlying cause of your problem and formulate a plan of action to help you reclaim your health. We have helped many people in Schererville, Highland, Dyer, and Crown Point, Indiana, improve from these sorts of injuries since 1991 and we might be able to help you, as well!
