Often defined by compression of nerves and vascular structures that originate in the cervical region and the upper extremity, compression of these structures can result in numbness and tingling, general discomfort in the upper extremity and chest, and even result in feelings of fatigue and heaviness in the arm and hand. These nerves and vascular structures typically become compressed in the area just above the first rib and behind the clavicle after they originate from the cervical region. Treatment of TOS requires a multimodal approach that often involves improving first rib mobility, improving thoracic mobility, improving posture, strengthening of the scapular stabilizers and patient education regarding posture throughout the day based on their activities of daily living.
