Do you have a syndrome?

If you think you have a syndrome but haven't found it below, you can always email us or use the contact form in the contact information section. Each person has different characteristics, habits, diet and environment, so the DAOS CLINIC cannot guarantee a full recovery from some syndromes.

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS)

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a group of abnormalities occurring in the upper limbs belt when blood vessels and nerves in the space between the clavicle (collarbone) and the first rib are compressed. The pain usually begins in the neck or shoulder, not infrequently extending to the inner arm, forearm, wrist and hand, and the presence of chest pain. Mild numbness of the lower cervical and upper thoracic vertebrae occurs in 80% of patients.

10 symptoms of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

1. neck pain sometimes turning into headache;
2. aching or stabbing pain in the upper extremities (shoulder, arm, forearm, hands, fingers);
3. pain in the upper back or chest, or both;
4. digestive system disorders (vomiting, diarrhea, indigestion);
5. pain in the scapula (shoulder blade);
6. numbness of the neck, shoulder, arm, forearm, hand, fingers;
7. instability in the cervical spine or on the contrary jamming of the neck;
8. dislocation of the clavicle or severe dislocation of the shoulder (presents in 20% cases);
9. disorders of the diaphragm, shallow breathing;
10. discomfort in the throat, difficulty swallowing saliva or food.


Pectoralis minor syndrome (PNS)

Pectoralis minor syndrome (PMS) is a condition that causes pain in the upper limbs, a frequent companion of this syndrome is thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) discussed above, but can also occur independently. It differs from thoracic outlet syndrome in the set of muscles and muscle chains involved. The vessels and nerves are squeezed in a slightly different area.

10 symptoms of Pectoralis Minor Syndrome.

1. chest pain;
2. chest muscle stiffness;
3. hand weakness;
4. shoulder pain;
5. chronic shoulder instability;
6. upper back pain;
7. neck pain;
8. shoulder blade pain;
9. poor posture;
10. shortness of breath.


Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a trapped nerve in the hand in a narrow carpal tunnel of the wrist. The problem comes from excessive, monotonous work in the hand area. It is a common problem in people who make their living on the internet, type a lot and hold the mouse for many hours a day. The problem is difficult and easy at the same time because it can involve more widespread health problems.

8 symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:

1. progressive tingling and pain in the hands, especially at night;
2. feeling of swelling and numbness in the fingers in the morning;
3. mumbness in the fingertips;
4. loss of grip in the hand;
5. impaired mobility of the hand, powerlessness in the hand;
6. relief from wrist movements;
7. colour change of the skin on the fingers caused by blood vessel compression;
8. coming and going stiffness in fingers.


Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)

Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS), also known as chronic myofascial pain (CMP), is the presence of multiple trigger points in a certain area of the body (neck and upper back, whole back, lower back and pelvis). Wherever you press in the area of myofascial syndrome there is pain. A striking feature of this syndrome is the constant muscle tension accompanied by intense pain. There are extreme abnormalities where all myofascial chains are broken and pain is present all over the body. As with any syndrome it reduces the quality of life, but delaying treatment can lead to severely controllable abnormalities, so please contact us as soon as the above information resembles your condition.

8 symptoms of Myofascial Pain Syndrome:

1. dizziness and nausea;
2. shortness of breath;
3. unusual heartbeat;
4. sleep disturbances and weakness;
5. irritability and excessive sweating;
6. feeling of discomfort;
7. pain appears with physical activity;
8. pain with physical activity as well as at rest.


Shoulder impingement syndrome

Impingement syndrome is pain caused by a conflict between the head of the humerus (the bone of the upper arm) and the acromion (part of the scapula) The rotator cuff includes several major as well as accessory muscles and any imbalance can lead to the onset of this syndrome, in the first stage it is a slight inflammation, with prolonged neglect problems can lead to rubbing of the tendons of the shoulder and muscle rupture. A common problem among gym members is elementary safety violations and the lack of stretching leading to a decrease in the interval between the bones.

7 symptoms of Shoulder Impingement Syndrome:
1. pain in shoulder cuff;
2. aching shoulder pain at night;
3. shoulder cuff pain during any hand activity;
4. restricted range of motion with pain;
5. hand weakness;
6. shoulder inflamation;
7. clavicle dislocation (as a result of compensatory factor).


Intercostal neuralgia

Intercostal neuralgia is a condition in which a person experiences neuropathic pain in the intercostal nerves that run throughout the chest and abdomen. There are many possible causes such as infections, cancer, inflammatory diseases and physical trauma.

8 symptoms of Intercoastal Neuralgia;

1. shooting pain around the ribs;

2. shooting pain in upper chest or upper back;

3. a squeezing pressure sensation that wraps around the chest from front to back;

4. loss of appetite;

5. tingling and numbness in the ribs, chest, or abdomen;

6. restricted mobility of shoulders and neck;

7. pain in the arms, shoulder or back;

8. chest pain while inhaling or exhaling.


Cervicobrachial syndrome

Cervicobrachial syndrome is a syndrome of compression of a bundle of nerves or individual nerve endings emanating from the cervical spine and passing under the collarbone. Depending on the number of problem areas in the spine, it can manifest itself in different ways: from simple neck pain to complex spasmodic pain radiating to the neck, shoulder and outer arm, as well as numbness in the thumb, shoulder blade and even the chest.

9 symptoms of Cervicobrachial Syndrome

1. pain in neck, shoulder, arm, thumb, shoulder plade;

2. numbness;

3. limitation of the amplitude of movement in the shoulder;

4. tingling in the neck, shoulder, arm, hand, thumb;

5. inflammation and swelling;

6. weakness in the hands;

7. inability to lift the arm

8. shooting pain from neck to arm

9. severe stiffness in upper back, shouldars.
