Do You Have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)?
Do you have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome? You likely feel this pain in your
neck, arm or hand. It’s often an electrical or throbbing feeling that
travels down your arm and can make your hands weak. Impingement in this
area can cause secondary symptoms such as carpal tunnel pain.
Massage Therapy Can Help!
At Athletic Edge, we understand that thoracic outlet syndrome can be extremely painful and
mentally challenging…and we’re here to help! Our massage therapists are
skilled in injury rehab and pain relief.
Understanding Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
The thoracic outlet is the space under the collar bone where the bundle
of nerves from the neck enter the thorax/chest and proceed toward the
humerus bone of the arm. This nerve bundle can be impinged by the bones
or muscles of the neck, the collar bone “locking down” against the ribs,
tight pectoralis major or minor muscles or a rotated shoulder joint or
shoulder girdle. You may also have a herniated disc.
Why Choose Athletic Edge?
We can help you! Our massage therapists will review your overall
posture and help assess the actual cause of your pain because it’s
likely that your thoracic outlet pain pattern has been building over
time. We will also provide you with stretches and postural
recommendations to help get you feeling better.
Our trained therapists will provide the right treatment for you, whether it’s work on your posture, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, a series of muscle energy techniques, or active stretching and release.
In addition to working with many local athletes and professional
sports teams, the staff at Athletic Edge works in
conjunction with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists,
acupuncturists and other health care professionals to provide our
clients with the highest level of care possible. We have treated
everything from pulled muscles, whiplash and joint pain to scoliosis,
carpal tunnel syndrome and severe nerve pain.
