Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Treating Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a condition that occurs when the blood vessels or nerves that pass through the thoracic outlet, the space between the collarbone and the first rib, become compressed. This can be caused by an enlargement or a shift in the muscles near the thoracic outlet, a downward shift of the clavicle, physical trauma, repetitive injuries or sports-related activities.

Symptoms

Symptoms can include pain and numbness in the neck, shoulder, arm or hand. Compressed blood vessels may restrict circulation in the arm, causing discoloration and a cool feeling in the arm and hand.

Treatments

Treatment options can include anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, and exercises that can correct bad posture. At times, surgery may be needed.

If you are experiencing back pain, neck pain, weakness of the neck, stiffness of the neck or have a spine injury, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
