T4 syndrome is a condition that typically presents with upper mid back pain, bilateral paresthesia, and numbness in the hands with no neurological or vascular signs. The cause appears to be related to lack of proper motion or joint fixations in the thoracic vertebra, which may refer symptoms into the arms. In a recent case study, a 64-year-old woman with symptoms consistent with T4 syndrome saw resolution of her symptoms following a course of chiropractic care that aimed to restore joint motion in her mid back.
