Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) in Spokane WA

Chiropractic Spokane WA Arm Pain

A condition that causes numbness/tingling in Spokane WA in one or both arms. It can be caused by decreased clearance between the 1st rib and clavicle or even an extra rib on the 7th cervical vertebra, these tend to be rare but can happen. Most commonly it is caused by hypertonic (tight) muscles in the neck and chest. The scalene muscles in the neck and the pectoralis muscles in the chest can put pressure on the nerves/arteries to the arms, causing tingling or numbness.

Causes for TOS, more focused on the muscular cause include poor posture, stress, prolonged sitting, working on a computer/tablet/phone, heavy backpacks, sports injuries, car accidents, and lifting heavy weights.

TOS Relief in Spokane WA

If diagnosed properly TOS responds very well to chiropractic care and soft tissue manipulation. Other treatments include being more aware of posture, decreasing time on the computer/tablet/phone, avoiding heavy overhead lifting, and balancing the strength ratio between chest and back.
