How Can A Chiropractor Help?
Our chiropractors are trained professionals when it comes to musculoskeletal complaints. The goals of treatment intertwine with treatment modalities and exercise rehabilitation. Due to the fact thoracic outlet syndrome is directly correlated with the thoracic spine (upper back), it is obvious that adjustments and soft tissue therapies will be focused in that area.
