Discussion of treatments for Thoracic outlet syndrome:

The goals of treatment are two-fold: to correct postural abnormalities that might contribute to the compression, and to establish an exercise program to strengthen the shoulder muscles. Most often a conservative course of treatment is followed. If vascular or major neurological impairment is present, surgical decompression may be considered.
