What is Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and How to Treat it in Malaysia?

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a complex disorder that impacts the neck, upper back, chest, shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands. It results from compression of blood vessels or nerves in the neck. The most common cause of these compressions is muscular issues that are coupled with neck, and upper back disorders of the spine. To recover, you need targeted care that fixes and repairs damaged tissues without surgery or injections. 

Surgical procedures of a thoracic outlet syndrome are entirely unwarranted. They are unwarranted a the condition is easily treated with focused therapy regiments. SUrgery has far more significant harmful impacts compared to the possible benefits it provides patients with thoracic outlet disorder.  

Steroidal injections are useless in patients with thoracic outlet syndrome. Injecting steroids into the muscles leads to degenerative changes that may not be reversible. Besides, it only offers a limited reduction of pain for 1-2 weeks. In light of its short-term effects and the harm it produces, it is far better to opt for non-invasive therapy procedures.

Is there any self-test that confirms a Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?

Roo's test the easiest self-assessment for thoracic outlet syndrome. It is quick and highly accurate. 
Roo’s test has better sensitivity for provoking symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome. This test requires the patient to adapt to the “surrender position,” which involves hyperabduction and external rotation of the arm. The patient is instructed to open and close the hands for 1-3 minutes with the elbow bent and arms abducted to 90 degrees and externally rotated to compress the neurovascular structures and provoke the symptoms. The shoulder blades need to be evaluated to check for abnormal movement and position of the scapular.
