Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is caused by compression of the nerves in your neck called the brachial plexus or the arteries and veins that run from your heart into your arm. These structures– which we collectively call the neurovascular sleeve– can become compressed in several different areas as they pass from the neck into the shoulder and between the collar bone and 1st rib.
Mederi Health has seen patients suffering from pain, numbness, and tingling down the arms due to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Additionally, people may experience this sensation when working over their head (like when you brush your hair or while painting). It is extremely important for the clinician to determine which area is responsible for the patient’s condition so a proper treatment plan can be developed.
Mederi Health uses a holistic approach to treat Thoracic Outlet Syndrome that includes integrating traditional and alternative medicines to create a treatment plan that fits each patient’s unique needs.
