Dry Needling for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Transcript: Hi. Welcome to The Twitch Dry Needling Video Training Series, where I’ll show you a fantastic dry needling technique, followed by a manual therapy technique to get great results for your patients every time.

Okay. What do you do with a patient who has pain down the arm, pins and needles, or even vascular symptoms?

When you’re thinking about those symptoms, think about thoracic outlet syndrome, and if you’re thinking about that, then you’re thinking about needling to the pec minor.

A very straightforward muscle to needle, and very effective at reducing symptoms coming from thoracic outlet syndrome because, of course, the important structures that lie beneath the pec minor and brachial plexus.

So, there we go. Great. Excellent.

All right, so what do we do as a follow-up technique for reducing outlet syndrome symptoms?

So, contacting under the coracoid process just in here in the cross over position, and we’re going to stretch that out just here, stretching that pec minor, using some breathing, and just contacting here with the hypothenar eminence.

So that’s a great follow-up technique for anyone with pec minor symptoms or thoracic outlet syndrome down the arm. Hope that helps.
