A common injury suffered in car crash and other vehicular accidents results from the seatbelt strap causing injury by pressing violently on the chest in a car crash. This injury is called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. What are the symptoms so you know if you suffered this injury?
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome At A Glance
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition whereby symptoms are produced from compression of nerves or blood vessels, or both, because of an inadequate passageway through an area (thoracic outlet) between the base of the neck and the armpit. Symptoms include neck, shoulder, and arm pain, numbness, or impaired circulation to the extremities (causing discoloration). Diagnosis of thoracic outlet syndrome is suggested by the symptoms and physical findings and is sometimes supported by electrical and/or radiology tests. Treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome usually involves physical-therapy exercises and avoiding certain prolonged positions of the shoulder.
