Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment Options
Thoracic outlet syndrome, or TOS, is a condition in which the nerves and blood vessels in the space between your collarbone and your first rib are compressed, causing pain and numbness in your arm, neck, and hand. Left untreated, this syndrome can get worse, which is why physical therapy is often recommended!
Can Physical Therapy Help With Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?
Physical therapy treatments can help improve shoulder stability and strength. Therapy can also provide relief from shoulder pain by strengthening muscles that support the joints in your arms and shoulders.
Depending on how severe your symptoms are, you may notice improvement after just a few physical therapy sessions.The team at Pinnacle PT can assess your situation and provide a plan of treatment suiting your particular needs.
