If you struggle with thoracic outlet syndrome, we can develop a chiropractic treatment plan for you in Barrie, ON.
Thoracic outlet syndrome refers to a group of disorders that can develop when the nerves or the blood vessels that exist between the first rib and the collarbone become compressed in some manner. As a result of this compression, pain in the neck and shoulders, as well as finger numbness, may develop.
Sports-related injuries, physical trauma in a vehicle accident, work-related injuries, and pregnancy can all cause thoracic outlet syndrome to develop. In some cases, however, the cause of this condition cannot be determined.
If you struggle with thoracic outlet syndrome and are interested in finding relief, come and visit us at Optimum Wellness in Barrie, Ontario. In many situations, the discomfort associated with this condition can be overcome with non-surgical solutions. For example, when you come visit our office, we may develop a chiropractic treatment plan for you that includes joint manipulation and mobilization, stretching exercises, and other techniques.
In addition to developing a chiropractic treatment plan for you, we may also provide you with solutions you can use at home to alleviate some of your discomfort. For instance, we may recommend not lifting heavy objects repetitively and not sleeping on your stomach at night, as both of these actions could cause added discomfort.
Remember, you do not have to let the pain and discomfort from thoracic outlet syndrome affect your daily life. To find out more about how we can help or to schedule an appointment with our office, please give us a call at Optimum Wellness today.
