If you have arm pain, you need to consider that if might be from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Nerve pain down the arm doesn’t just come from bulging discs, nerve compression from spinal joints, and carpal tunnel. If the arm nerves are compressed by the scalene muscles in the front of the neck, the rib or collar bone, or even under the Pec Minor muscle, this will give you pain or pins and needles in the arm too. So, here’s how to diagnose it using the Upper Limb Tension Test and how fix Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

TOS EXERCISE 1. Active Pec Minor stretch using eccentric contraction
The first exercise is a Thoracic Outlet Syndrome stretch for the Pec Minor—a major cause of TOS. It uses eccentric contraction.

TOS EXERCISE 2. Active Scalenes stretch
Exercise 2 loosens the scalene muscles, another major cause of TOS. This is one of the best Thoracic Outlet Syndrome rehab exercises.

TOS EXERCISE 3. Thread The Needle variation with wrist extension
For exercise 3, we stretch our arm behind us and extend the wrist slightly to slide the arms nerves along the arm. It acts as a nerve glide for TOS, but is great for posture too. Posture is a big key to improve this condition as it affects the relative position of the collar bone, 1st rib, and the muscles.

TOS EXERCISE 4. Lower half Wall Angel
The last exercise, a lower half Wall Angel, is great for posture and is a Pec Minor stretch.
