Whiplash Treatment and 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 an important bundle of nerves and blood vessels pass between the head and arm. The space is narrow and damage to the neck can cause swelling of the muscle tissue in the region, which can then constrict the nerves and result in symptoms.
Because the neck is a very intricate area, it can be complicated to pinpoint the exact source of your pain, and other disorders can mimic the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
