In Response To: Re: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (l. holaas)

The way i understand my TOS is that the injury to my spine threw my whole skeleton out of alignment. I think more women get TOS because of their smaller upper body frames. Nerves and blood vessels that run through the shoulder and down the arm get pinched in the reduced space that results from bones that are a little off their mark. Teri, your injury could be something else, but if you're getting pins and needles when you raise your arm, i think that's TOS. I was a construction worker and had to give up plastering for a couple of years, since it was too aggravating to this condition. I have no symptoms now as long as i occasionally get chiropractic adjustments and don't totally abuse my shoulder. Weightlifting, which i discovered 5 years ago has made a big difference. Keeping the muscles strong helps to keep the bones in their proper place. I find i need way fewer adjustments now. Teri, before i'd consider surgery i'd be sure to exhaust any other remedies including giving my body a good long time to attempt to heal itself. Good Luck!
