Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) and TMS Success Stories

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) referenced in TMS Books

The space traversed by the large blood vessel going into the arm is known as the thoracic outlet. the space can be narrowed by an extra rib, but this is quite rare. In the absence of an extra rib, doctors hypothesized that muscles in the shoulder are compressing the blood vessel and causing arm pain. There is no evidence that this happens.
