Compression of arteries, veins and/or nerves in the space above the first rib and behind the clavicle that leads to pain, weakness, heaviness, clumsiness, numbness, tingling, and/or changes in body temperature in the arm and hand. The exact symptoms vary depending on the exact structures being compressed.
The Physical Therapists at Apple Physical Therapy will design a personalized treatment plan specific to you and your injury that will include manual therapy techniques to mobilize the nerves in your shoulder and arm to alleviate symptoms. We will also include range of motion, stretching and strengthening exercises to improve mobility and strength in your shoulder to allow you to return to normal daily activity. If necessary, your PT may elect to use modalities such as heat and/or ice to help reduce pain and ready the body for exercise.
