Hello there....., The most common cause of these syndromes is trauma, either from direct trauma to the neck or from repetitive motion at work... The irritating presence of an incomplete extra rib is also a cause..... The treatment options include anti inflammatory medications, physical therapy, Surgery is usually reserved for those individuals with neurogenic TOS who have failed to improve with conservative management .....Consult Orthopedician....
