Do you have chronic pain in your neck or shoulders? Suffering from tension headaches? Maybe you wake up with a stiff neck, feeling un-rested when leaving your bed. You may be suffering from the effects of Thoracic-Outlet Syndrome. Be seen as soon as possible!
People suffering from TOS often go to their doctor, but find that their pain isn’t taken seriously or they’re offered only medications or surgery as treatment.
While web searches may tell you the condition is relatively rare, it’s very common in the group of highly functional people that we work with. TOS can affect every aspect of life, from fitness and leisure to sleep and work performance.
Causes of Thoracic-Outlet Syndrome
TOS results from tight muscles compressing nerves, veins, and sensitive structures from the base of the neck to the tips of the fingers. The pressure formed causes atrophy, pain, and dysfunction.
- Clenching or grinding teeth
- Repetitive activities
- Anatomical defects
- Pressure on your joints
- Poor Posture
Do You Clench or Grind Your Teeth?
Doctors frequently refer patients to a dentist to treat possible TMJ (temporomandibular joint). To save teeth, dentists will prescribe mouth guards, but mouth guards do not stop the pain and dysfunction caused by TOS.
