Can Chiropractic Care Help Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?

Dec 14, 2021

Understanding Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a condition caused by the compression of nerves and blood vessels in the thoracic outlet area, located between the neck and the shoulder. Individuals suffering from TOS often experience pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the upper extremities.

Living with TOS can significantly impact a person's quality of life and daily activities. If you or someone you know is struggling with TOS, it's important to explore all available treatment options.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and drug-free approach to managing the symptoms of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. A+ Healthcare specializes in providing chiropractic services specifically tailored to individuals with TOS.

Comprehensive Evaluation and Diagnosis

At A+ Healthcare, our experienced chiropractors will conduct a thorough evaluation to assess the severity and underlying causes of your TOS. This includes a detailed medical history review, physical examination, and any necessary diagnostic tests. With a comprehensive understanding of your condition, we can develop a personalized treatment plan that targets your specific needs.

Spinal Adjustments and Manipulations

Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations are core components of TOS treatment. By carefully applying controlled force to the spine and affected areas, our chiropractors can help restore proper alignment and mobility, reducing the pressure on nerves and blood vessels. These adjustments also promote optimal nervous system function, allowing your body to heal naturally.

Soft Tissue Therapy and Muscular Rehabilitation

In addition to spinal adjustments, our chiropractors may utilize soft tissue therapy techniques and prescribe specific exercises to strengthen and rehabilitate the muscles surrounding the thoracic outlet. These therapies aim to improve muscle balance, reduce inflammation, and enhance overall function.

Ergonomic and Lifestyle Recommendations

To support your healing process, our team at A+ Healthcare will provide you with valuable ergonomic and lifestyle recommendations. This may include guidance on posture, exercises to perform at home, and modifications to daily activities that may exacerbate your TOS symptoms. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and tools to manage your condition outside of our clinic.

Collaborative Care Approach

At A+ Healthcare, we believe in a collaborative approach to healthcare. Our chiropractors work closely with other medical professionals, such as physical therapists, orthopedists, and pain management specialists, to ensure comprehensive and integrated care for patients with TOS. We will coordinate with your healthcare team to provide you with the best possible outcomes.
