Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Maynard sees often in our Lancaster, OH office. Chiropractic is an excellent way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at how thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a crash and how Dr. Maynard can help you.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they travel under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which limits movement and puts stress on the tissues of the thoracic outlet. Pressure on the nerves can cause tingling or pins and needles in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.

We treat many auto injury cases in in our Lancaster, OH office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is back pain. Why is back pain such a common condition after a car accident? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
During a rear-end motor vehicle accident, your car and car seat are rapidly accelerated forward against your body. Since car seats don't perfectly align with the curvature of your spinal column, the car seat can put inconsistent force on your back. This can cause some of your spinal vertebrae to move in one direction while an adjacent vertebrae might move in another direction. This differential movement can sprain or strain the ligaments that hold your spine together. These types of injuries can cause chronic back pain if not treated promptly. Thankfully, chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain.

If you have shoulder pain after an auto collision, you're not alone. Dr. Maynard sees this type of condition frequently in our Lancaster, OH office. Your chiropractor can be very helpful for shoulder pain symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes shoulder pain and why chiropractic works.
There are at least two ways that you can get shoulder problems after a car crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder joint or by referred pain from the neck.
Direct injury can be caused by hitting your shoulder on a hard object in the car during the crash, or can occur if you have a tight grip on the steering wheel during a rear end collision. With this type of injury, you'll usually be aware of the pain shortly after the crash.
More frequently, Dr. Maynard finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but starts a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the neck. Injured ligaments or muscles in your spine can tweak nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've treated many types of shoulder pain in our Lancaster, OH office. This process involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural flexibility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.

Work injuries can be a serious problem for many people, and we see many of these types of injuries in our Lancaster, OH office. Dr. Maynard appreciates your situation and is here to help.
The advantages of chiropractic for work injuries are well-established. A 2013 survey involving 651 adults who were suffering with either back or neck pain found that the men and women who didn't see a chiropractor missed work at twice the rate of those who were seeing a chiropractor.
So, why don't more people use chiropractic care?
According to the participants in this report, two of the primary factors were that they thought they needed a referral for chiropractic care (which is typically no longer true) and they overestimated the costs associated with chiropractic treatment sessions by almost 70 percent.
The truth is, chiropractic patients actually spend less on care than medical patients, plus they are less likely to use drugs for their symptoms.
