In Response To: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (Teri Nelson)

After being thrown off a motorcycle and landing on my back in 1980, keeping my spine in alignment is an ongoing process. For years, TOS was a painful, lingering problem. Washing my hair and talking on the telephone, or any activity where my arm was slightly raised resulted in painful pins and needles. A physical therapist showed me a move that became a godsend in my most uncomfortable moments. Lie on your back on the floor, or on a firm surface like a couch or bed with the affected arm hanging off the side. Have a partner sit on top of you and use the heel of one hand with the other hand on top of it to press straight down firmly on the high curve of the collarbone. Apply pressure for a few seconds. You may have to adjust the placement of the pressure slightly to the left or right for comfort. Make sure you are using enough pressure. You have to move the bone. Rest and repeat three or four times. By rotating the clavicle this move helps to open up the nerve channels and never failed to give me instant relief. Hope it helps!
