Do you ever feel pain in your shoulders or shooting pain down your arms?
For example, do you feel this type of pain when you grab a door handle? This shooting pain can often be linked to a condition called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS). TOS is the term for a irritated or inflamed nerve that originates in the shoulder that travels down the arm. This irritation can be caused by a number of different conditions that Dr. Paez is trained to diagnosis and care for. TOS can be caused by Subluxation (spinal misalignment), muscle imbalance, nerve entrapment, and disc problems.
Chiropractic care successfully addresses TOS pain by not only minimizing the obvious symptoms, but by determining and eliminating the underlying cause of the problem. TOS can be a very painful and debilitating condition, and if not properly addressed can lead to permanent nerve damage. Common signs of TOS include pain, numbness and tingling in the hand, cold hands, and difficulty raising the arm. Dr. Paez’s thorough examination will identify if this is the case.
If you think you may have this condition (or other shoulder/arm/wrist problems) consult Dr. Paez for a complete examination.
