I’ve suffering from tingling and pain that shoots from my shoulder to my hand whenever I lift things. My physician thinks my problem is thoracic outlet syndrome. Will I need surgery? Are there other ways to treat my problem?

Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition where the nerves (arteries) that go to the arm and hand get squeezed between soft tissues near the side of the neck. Surgery is a last resort for treating it, because most people are able to get a handle on their syndrome symptoms through a therapy program. Specialized exercises can improve muscle balance and posture to lessen your thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms. A physical therapist usually designs the exercise program and can also suggest ways to do your work with greater ease and fewer thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms.
