When a disc is damaged, it may bulge or break open. This is called a Herniated Disc, which can affect the Thoracic Spine. Some common causes are simple movements such as bending forward, twisting, etc.
The Thoracic Outlet is the area where the nerves and blood vessels exit the base of the neck. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is the general term for the condition resulting from the compression of these structures.
Scoliosis is a disorder involving lateral bending and/or rotation of the vertebral bodies of the spine. They usually range from 10-50 degrees of side bending, with less than 7 degrees an incidental finding.
