After surgery, 70% of cases have a good or excellent response using a supraclavicular or transaxillary resection of the first rib. Improvement in pain symptoms ranges from 70% to 80%, some patients require occasional analgesics, and 10% note no improvement. In individuals with signs and symptoms and electrophysiologic changes consistent with classic TOS, no improvement in strength is noted when atrophy was present before surgery. 14 However, a 4-year follow-up reported no significant difference in return to work or symptom severity when the first rib was resected compared to a conservative, nonoperative approach. 15

Curves Improve Spinal Column Strength
Finally, let's take a look at the spinal column as a whole. When healthcare professionals refer to the different part of the spine, they reference them by the four main areas (cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral). Each bone within an area has its own number. The spine is naturally curved. These curves make the spinal column stronger, help absorb shock from running and jumping, and help you maintain your balance. The size of the curves varies by individuals, but excessive curves can cause problems.

axis or rotation while the global muscles have no direct attachment on the spine.

  • Avoid preloading the spine with overhead arm movements too early in rehab.
  • Cervical range of motion and isometrics to start only after 8 weeks.
  • Nopain no gain axiom usually does not apply to the spine
  • Focus on low load high repetitions to improve endurance rather than high load low repetition for
    strength.
