Plymouth Chiropractor Treatment For Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

More commonly referred to as TOS, thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition caused by compression of the superior thoracic outlet. There is a neurovascular bundle (nerves and blood vessels) that runs from the base of the neck through the top of the shoulder, and down into the arms.

These nerves and blood vessels run directly between the Anterior/Middle Scalene muscles and the first rib. When these muscles are over used, and become irritated they put pressure on the nerovascular bundle causing a variety of symptoms running down the arm, and even into the fingers.
