    Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a condition that is not well understood by clinicians and the general public. In clinical practice, thoracic outlet syndrome is typically not a diagnosis that gets considered early on, being passed over for other conditions such as cervical radiculopathy, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears, and many other pathologies, which can lead to it being mismanaged.
    TOS can be well managed conservatively if the appropriate care is implemented. In this video we break down the general condition, common assessments used, and go through different stretches and exercises that you can implement in management of the condition.

    Thank you for the video! I have had tingling and numbness on the back of my arm, in the forearm and at the muscle between the thumb and pointer finger for a while now on both sides of my arms. Furthermore I also have dry hands which has caused calluses on the middle sides of my fingers. These excersis have helped reduce some of my symptons but I am still unsure if I have TOS since I do not have any pain at all (just numbness and tingling) and I have no symptons around the Thoractic area. I also started getting dry hands after I recieved my first symptons in the arms which I have not found an explanation for.
    I will continue with these excersises to evalate in a couple of weeks if they worked. Thanks again for the video!

    Love the video. I have been doing these exercises with my Kinesiologist but still have the burning in my chest with pain down the arm left side. I have healed from accident after fractures in T1, being thrown across the bus going over cliff, landing on it's side thrust on to my head and neck. These fractures caused wedging of T1 in my and subsequent narrowing of my cervical c4 to c7 T1 to T 2. But it also caused the Collar Bone to be protruding on the left side. Can it cause this problem.? Will these exercises eventually fix my pain in upper thoracic?
    Love to hear from you.

    I have Marfan Syndrome, diagnosed at 10 years of age in 1974. My case is Incredibly complex but most of my early problems involved the skeletal system. From C1-C2 instability, to Spondylolisthesis, I've had it and the Physio for it. There is only 1 exercise in this video that I recognise. I'm going to give some of this a try, carefully as I had a Sternotomy 3 years ago for open heart surgery.

      The symptoms of TOS may feel exactly like restricted circulation, but actually the circulation system is not affected. It is the compression of the brachial nerve that produces that sensation.

  • The Grim Reaper

    It's a tough diagnosis, there's loads on getting a diagnosis out there but as the video states it's highly unreliable. I invite any healthy individuals to do a roos test for three minutes and not get heavy arms/tingling.
    Normally it's a process of elimination through extensive testing as tos mimics things like disc bulges and rotator muscle issues etc...

    Great video! Comprehensive and concise. I have used these drills on my self and with patients. Thank you for presenting updated evidence, many practitioners over emphasize static stretching and people do not improve. The elbows-in push up is a perfect platform to build strength and activate pec minor good to see it as a foundational drill! You may want to reinforce the concept of "not increasing symptoms more." If symptoms increase downgrade and check for scapular stability. Posture is also worth mentioning. Thanks for posting!

    it's not gonna change anything for thoracic outlet syndrome. The real cause of TOS is slouch posture, weak upper trapezius which cannot hold shoulder girdle and shoulder just simply collapsing, if shoulder collapsing - collarbone follows and dropped to the first rib squeezing nerves bundles. A key to rid of TOS is build stronger upper trapezius, rear delts and raise the collarbone / scapula level - realeasing subclavius, pec minor and lats is crucial.

      @Chef Tornado lol, ugh, sorry to hear and yes yoga fooled me at first too but i never got sore because ive always had a good and long stretch routine before, during and after my workouts and always regularly in the morning and before bed so i kinda had a head start on not being thrown off from the initial pain and i never really sweated unless i changed up my routine or went harder or heavier for more bulking... when I'd visit my sister in Florida id go running in 112 degree weather with a hoodie and sweat pants and people thought i was nuts but i acclimated very well weather it was hot or cold, good genetics i guess but when i tore my shoulder so bad i couldn't move it, i had to use my other hand to manipulate it, i was in some intense pain, my friend gave me Adequan i.m. injectable, its non steroidal (ive never used a steroid and wouldn't) and you can use a diabetic syringe BUT its only for equine and other types of working animals, i was skeptical at first but i did all my research on it and at this point it was worth a try because i didn't want to have surgery at all and be laid up for weeks or months. It literally repairs, builds and renews torn, ripped or lost tendon, ligaments and cartilage, i was AMAZED by the results, by the 6th day i had range of motion back but still some pain and after 10-12 days it was like it never happened at all... i loaded up on it every day for 4 days then 1 shot every 2 days for 2 weeks and its pretty cheap, 50 bucks and you'll get 2 to 3 uses... one of my buddys back was junk so i used the rest on him and by the first week or so he was like, bro what the hell is that, i feel like it never got injured... the thing is this, animals cant tell us whats wrong so these million dollar race horses need to be repaired so they have to make something that works and let me tell you, it works wonders but im pretty sure only a vet can get it unless you know a guy that knows a guy, lol... Brittany, im telling you, this stuff works wonders, do some research on it and make your decision, you wont be sorry, you inject it right on the areas that are needed, shoot it straight into your soft tissue/muscle as deep as you can without hitting the bone obviously so it works into the area needed, i was more than thankful and grateful for it and anyone else reading this, there's no harm in trying it... the government will not make it legal for human consumption because it WORKS they cant keep gouging you for surgery and pills, they'd rather keep putting band aids on you to suck you dry, thats why nothing in the medical field works anymore, they dont make money on the cure only the B backs and they're hoping you'll be back regularly to fish through your pockets more and more. But good luck, too bad you didn't finish my original reply, i was hoping for a braciole recipe other than my own, lol... have a great evening, hope youre doing well, keep in touch, you seem like a good chat...

      @Joe Diblasio lol as soon as you said yoga, I stopped reading. Not out of disrespect, but because I’ve done yoga for 6 years now. In the last year my shoulder has suffered because I’m a chef at a Big 12 university football stadium and during football season, the hours are extremely long and hard. My body never had time to recover! So when it was over and after Christmas, I was too scared I would tear something. Turns out my MRI said I had several inoperable tears in my rotator cuff. For months I’ve been trying to get back to very basic yoga but then I had to have surgery etc. Funny enough, I’m finally to a point 10 days post-op that I’m starting to do some basic stretching to get geared up for going back to work. Tennis elbow has set in, so I’m STILL having to take it easy! My goal is to be back better than I was before the 2021 season. Thank you for the suggestion lol but yeah I’m a huge believer in mind, body, and spirit. And every man I’ve taught a very light yoga session with, has taken everything back about what they said! They were sweating and so sore the next day!

      @L W some good exercises to try out that work well are hanging sit ups with a full range of motion with a full body twist, go down twist left and on your way up twist right, do 6 or 8 then go the opposite. Go down twist right and on the way back up your twisting left, do it in a fluid motion, do as many as you can even amounts on each side, start on a decline board if you have to, also do full contractions, not just the motion and if you can, give yourself a bear hug as you do it or just put your hands on your head, elbows facing as high as you can point them... also, pull overs, lay on a flat bench, use a light weight first till you get use to it, full range of motion, not stopping and no letting the weight touch the floor or your chest/stomach... ab roller, try to do these about shoulder width if you can if not its ok, close grip is fine, do them on your knees, start with small bites, dont roll out fully till you can build the strength to do so, they're hard but work well...you want to do 4 to 6 sets each exercise, with a 1 to 2 minute rest period, this will tax your slow twitch muscle fibers and help the muscle grow faster... the main thing is to not give up, it takes time, usually 6 to 8 weeks to notice results, remember, it took time for our bodies to become unwell and it takes time to heal them, eat the right foods and get enough rest to heal, its detrimental for our bodies to get rest... good luck and i wish you well with your recovery

    Interesting exercise selection, love your reasoning about the eccentric/ active stretching! I am always wondering why in TOS stretching suddenly should be effective...
    If you do a Video on diagnosis (which would be great) could you take a look at Illig et al. (2016) J Vasc Surg? They standardised the definitions for the different TOS forms in great detail and hope that they become the norm so everyone knows what we are talking about (the recommend not using disputed TOS for example)
    One problem with TOS is its varying definitions, which complicates interpreting the research
    Also we have nearly zero rcts for conservative or surgical management (you mentioned 90-100% can be managed conservatively, where is this data from?)

      Hi Florian,
      Thanks for the great comment and glad that you enjoyed the video! We have some other encouragement to do a deeper dive into the condition, so we likely will.
      There is a lot of disagreement within the definitions and in the future video we will highlight this and break down the differences and why there is so much conversation going on about the categories.
      In regards to your last point, we never stated a randomized control trial or a study comparing conservative and surgical. The statistics we referenced are from the Hooper 2010 paper referenced in the description, which pulls that from Vanti 2007. Thanks

    Hmmmm. I had a chunk of my right pec minor removed in the early/mid 1990s. I had built myself up via weight and had discomfort in the chest, shoulder, and down my arm. The therapy didn't seem to help. So, a vascular surgeon did the surgery. I wanted something done. Months later there was a release with the rib cage on the right dropping and rotating forward. The pain went away. The drawbacks were reduced symmetry and tightness on the left side in my upper back and a bit less mobility on the left. They never mentioned it at the time but the curvature in my spine had to contribute. What I am doing now is trying to reverse the release a bit to arrive at a happy medium if possible. Thanks for the video.

      This is completely anecdotal, but after a year of research and trial and error I've come to the conclusion it is probably true. Stretching is fine and works for temporary relief but I've gotten 0 long term relief from stretching. While if I do a trap/shoulder workout (fairly light) I often have little to no symptoms for days. Why? I have no idea. The only thing that makes sense to me is that the traps are pulling the collarbone/shoulders up temporarily causing some pressure to release from my brachial plexus.

    been suffering from both the vascular and neuro for 6 years now. was told the issue was my neck and was given a cortisone shot at the c6 but nothing changed only that after 2 years i was given a mri on my neck and found that my c5 6 and 7 needed a bone fusion and spurs cleaned off. that didn't help any. so i had to look for help elsewhere i asked to see a chiropractor .she said she couldn't help me as something is being overlooked and referred me to a shoulder surgeon who said my issue is with my neck so he referred me to a neck surgeon who said my issue is with my shoulder. so the shoulder doc had me get a mri on my shoulder and found that i had torn the rotator cuff. so finally my doc had me get a full body bone scan and that showed issues with my sternum and thoracic outlet. so now i can hopefully get fixed. what's bad also is that the mri Kaiser gave me before giving me the shot didn't show any bone damage. i got in this condition from a car wreck when i t boned a guy that turned across the highway without checking for on coming traffic wound up with a sensation of a icepick stabbing in the back between the shoulder blade and spine. also couldn't hold my head upright. after 3 weeks i woke up and felt like nothing had happened. but it would retrigger at times and would be like i just got in the accident and would take 3 weeks to go away. while in my 2nd week i was talking about boxing with a friend and i threw a right jab followed by a left jab and slide in and poped up with a right uppercut ...and that turned out to be not only the best punch i threw but my worse mistake

      Although clinical history and adequate physical examination is required, you could try Muscle relaxants to get muscles loose and then try Trigger Point Therapy (There is information in facebook group) and see if it helps your symptoms.
      Also, if you have troubles swallowing, it could be related to other condition or maybe there is something else, try with postural corrections (cervical, thoracic and lumbar) in everything you do daily.

    Stretching your neck to the side actually pulls your ribs up higher into the thoracic outlet narrowing the outlet further. I would delete this video and redo it to delete this stretch

      @Dr. James Stoxen DC, FSSEMM Hon FWSSEM i have TOS it begins with me last year when i turned 20 years old so i have little bit of pain sometimes in my left arm and its a little bit hard to breathe sometimes too , i saw many peoples says that the surgical intervention may cost many problems later and some of patients who did a surgery said that it better not to do it , so can u tell me please if i can avoid doing the surgery and live with this syndrome or i just have to do it ?

      @E3 Rehab You stated in your video that research does not support static stretching for TOS yet you statically stretch the scalenes. I dont understand why you would show static stretching to untrained viewers while you state research does not support it. Think about it. You have a hypertonic scalene lifting the first rib. The muscle is short not because its short but because it is inflamed and contracted. So you are going to pull on the head which strains an already inflamed scalene muscle which obviously lifts the first rib higher into the outlet. Stretching the scalenes is contraindicated in this condition. Period!
      I had thoracic outlet syndrome and beat it. I studied it intensely to write my book. I wrote the only #1 bestselling book on thoracic outlet syndrome which involved reading all 2500 articles in peer review journals. This intense research into TOS led to lectures at 18 medical conferences on thoracic outlet syndrome. Editors of 30 medical journals asked to write asked me to write on my approach to TOS. I would love to share with you how we treat the thoracic outlet as a component of the integrated spring mass system. I would hate to think that you would advise patients to perform stretches that could perpetuate an already chronic TOS or lead to a blood clot.
