About the offer

Most patients require medication and physical therapy to treat thoracic outlet syndrome without surgery. Conservative therapy has a symptomatic character and, first of all, is aimed at eliminating painful sensations and sensitive disorders. As a rule, it is used for the mild course of this disease. The patient may be prescribed the following: anti-inflammatory drugs;drugs to dissolve a blood clot;blockades with glucocorticosteroids;anesthetics;low doses of antidepressants. In addition, B-group vitamins can be used if necessary. Injections of botulinum toxin temporarily reduce pain and spasm from vascular compression. Medications can be administered to dissolve blood clots with venous or arterial syndromes. The treatment plan can be supplemented with various physiotherapy methods, magnetic therapy, massage, and curative gymnastics. In the early stages, it relieves tension on nerve trunks and blood vessels and leads to improvement. Correct posture and exercises can change the clavicle's position relative to the 1st rib and eliminate disease symptoms. In general, the conservative treatment plan is selected individually depending on the complaints of a particular patient.
