PROGRAM DETAILS

Therapeutic treatment techniques for symptoms of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is caused by a lack of space for the subclavian artery and the brachial plexus as they pass through the clavicle and upper ribs. A tight ligament, an extra cervical rib, shoulder injury, or overuse can all lead to TOS. A cluster of symptoms including neck and shoulder pain with numbness or tingling of the fingers and reduced grip strength are present with TOS. Typical diagnosis of TOS is rare and most common after surgical removal of the first cervical rib. While a diagnosis of TOS is uncommon, patients often present with symptoms not unlike TOS, pain that moves and changes or presents little improvement after surgery. Patients with a diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel, arm pain, etc., that do not improve with typical protocols can be frustrating for both the patient and the clinician.

This one-day seminar will explore conservative approaches to treat symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome for strengthening the shoulder muscles, improving range of motion, and promoting better posture to help patients with arm and hand pain. Attendees will discover how to differentiate TOS from other more common orthopedic conditions, determine the most effective treatment options, and outline a home exercise program that will allow the patient to return to a healthy state. This unique look at the symptoms of TOS and treatment can not only change patient outcomes but also help build rapport between therapists and medical professionals.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Apply treatment approaches for thoracic outlet syndrome for patients with symptoms similar to TOS
• Identify the causes of TOS and ascertain which symptoms resemble TOS including shooting pain in the arms and traps, headaches, and decreases in arm range of motion and strength
• Recognize the challenges when faced with a diagnosis of TOS and eliminate confusion with conditions sharing similar symptoms
• Examine treatment modalities for TOS symptoms for pain management, increased AROM, and improved strength, and outline how to prevent the return of symptoms
• Develop techniques for both in-clinic and at-home therapeutic treatment of TOS symptoms


What You Should Bring
Participants are asked to bring the following for the workshop portion of this seminar:

  • Portable Massage Table
  • Wear appropriate attire to participate in lab
