Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
What is Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?
Between the mid-back and armpit there are nerves and blood vessels that send signals and necessary blood flow which allow for proper movement of the lower neck, arms, and hands. Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition in which these nerves and blood vessels in the lower neck are restricted, disrupting normal nerve signals and blood vessel function. People with Thoracic outlet syndrome experience discomfort and regular neck pain, back pain, numbness in the arm and weakness of the hand.
