Thoracic Outlet is the space between your collarbone and first rib. When blood vessels or nerves are compressed here it can cause pain in your neck and shoulders, and hand numbness. It is sometimes diagnosed when neck and shoulders are not the cause. This syndrome can be come from trauma, repetitive injuries, anatomical defects, poor posture, obesity, or pregnancy. Our effective therapies can include acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, cupping, manual therapy, massage, external and internal herbal formulas, and perhaps dietary changes. We always treat one gentle step at a time.
