What is Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?

Thoracic outlet syndrome is felt as numbness, tingling, soreness or decreased circulation in the shoulders, arms or fingers.

The thoracic outlet is a narrow space where a vital bundle of nerves and blood vessels pass between the head and arm. The space is narrow and injury to the neck can cause irritation of the muscle tissue in the area, which can then compress the nerves and result in symptoms.

Because the neck is intricate, it can be difficult pinpointing the precise origin of your pain, and other disorders can mimic the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
