Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Treatment

What is Thoracic Outlet/Inlet Syndrome?

Thoracic Outlet SyndromeThoracic Outlet/Inlet Syndrome occurs when blood vessels or nerves get compressed as they leave the thorax. The subclavian artery, the subclavian vein, and the lower brachial plexus roots are affected and they are compressed in the following three areas:

  • Between the front and middle scalene neck muscles
  • Between the first rib and collarbone
  • Under the shoulder blade’s coracoid process

People may develop Vascular Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, which affects two percent of the population, and Neurological Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, which affects 98 percent of the population. The other type of syndrome is the Thoracic Inlet Syndrome, which obstructs the passage of the nerves, veins, and arteries from the root of the neck to the armpit.

A physiotherapist will be able to determine the type of syndrome the person has by their symptoms. They will address bad back and neck postures and joint mobility by teaching them posture correction and mobility exercises.
