Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

What Is Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?

Thoracic outlet syndrome is caused by a compression of the nerves and blood vessels in the area between your first rib and collarbone. This is referred to as the thoracic outlet. Since these nerves are pinched, you have pain in your neck, shoulders, and hands. You’ll experience numbness in your fingers and hands also.
