Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Numbness, tingling, or alteration of sensitivity in the fingers or part of the hand isn't always due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It may be caused by nerve impingement higher up, at one or more places closer to the neck:  between the collarbone and the first rib, or between certain neck muscles. This is called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. I have an effective treatment plan for it.
