Thoracic Outlet Syndrome or TOS is not a singular disorder but a group of conditions that cause symptoms in the neck, chest, upper back, or arms. TOS pain results when spinal nerves or blood vessels near the neck or in the neck are pinched or compressed as they exit the spine passed through the neck and chest into the upper arm. The compression associated with the thoracic spine is different than that caused by a slipped disc. In slipped disc, nerve compression occurs at the spine. In other words, the nerves of the neck get pinched as they exit the spine. However, in thoracic outlet syndrome, the impingement is caused by soft tissues (muscles) or the first rib.
What Is The Difference Between Traffic Outlet Syndrome Pain And Neck Pain?
The difference between neck pain and TOS is that neck pain results from issues that arise from the neck alone, and disorders of TOS are linked to problems or dysfunctions of numerous structures in the neck, arms, chest, or shoulders, resulting in compressions of blood vessels and nerves. Also, a common condition seen in patients with TOS is vascular disorders. However, differentiating nick Payne from TOS is extremely difficult and requires clinical expertise and diagnostic processes and tests such as MRI or nerve conduction studies for a conclusive diagnosis.
The only conclusive method of ruling out the neck as the primary source of TOS like-symptoms is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An absence of spinal disc issues or nerve compressions through MRI assessments in the presence of TOS-like symptoms is a conclusive finding for a thoracic outlet syndrome.
What Are The Common Symptoms Associated With Traffic Outlet Syndrome?
