Here Is Everything You Need To Know About
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a complex condition that requires a thorough examination to determine the root cause of the issue.

The thoracic outlet refers to the small space between the first rib and your collar bone. Within this space, important blood vessels and nerves from your neck course through in order to travel down into your arm. There is also a group of muscles called your scalenes that are often affected because they lie over this group of nerves and vessels.

How does it feel?

TOS symptoms can vary greatly but patients often experience a combination of the following:

  • Numbness/tingling in the arm or hand especially when the arm is by the side or overhead
  • Cold sensation or decreased sensation in the arm or hand
  • Pulsing sensation in the arm or hand
  • Weakness in the arm or hand

Diagnosis

We determine if you have TOS ruling out a pinched neck nerve, shoulder strain, shoulder impingement, and over pathologies that could mimic similar symptoms. TOS requires very special testing and examination to be treated correctly to provide fast relief and long-term improvement. You may recall a famous case of thoracic outlet syndrome with Orlando Magic player, Markelle Fultz.

Can Physical Therapy Help?

  • TOS treatment incorporates soft tissue work to specific tissues affecting the nerves and vessels that go down your arm. These muscles can include the scalenes, pectoralis minor, pectoralis major, anterior deltoid and even the biceps tendon. We also incorporate hands-on mobilizations of the neck, shoulder, thoracic spine and ribs. Then, we focus on specific activity modifications and exercises to reduce irritation of the nerves and vessels around these muscles, bones, and joints. We typically see significant symptom improvement within just a few treatment sessions when TOS is correctly diagnosed.
  • Good news!! Recent research has actually shown that physical therapy is a better option than surgery, pain medication and injections. We can help you avoid unnecessary invasive procedures and tests that cost a fortune with limited effectiveness.
  • Dr. B. listened to my situation, tested/analyzed my situation, and began treating me for my issues and I got immediate improvement. I would not have lasted at my job without his weekly sessions. Professional, extremely well informed, data driven, Caring and Friendly. The individual attention I received was extremely helpful and got me through one of the hardest and most painful episodes in my life. – Delaney C.
