Did you know that chiropractic care is covered by auto insurance? Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (tingling down your arms due to an injury) is a common symptom after an auto injury. Chiropractic care can be very helpful for thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms after a car accident. The thoracic outlet is a group of nerves and blood vessels 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 under and between 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 tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm. Other symptoms clients report after being in an accident may include neck pain and stiffness, difficultly looking over their shoulder while driving, low back and leg pain, and mid back pain.
