Thoracic Outlet Obstruction syndrome


My Dr. says I have Thoracic-Outlet Obstruction syndrome.

I have some questions:
1) What type Dr. (specialist) should I go to for a more thorough exam?
2) What tests should my Dr. have performed to diagnose?
3) My Dr. sent me to a Physical Theparist who says he needs to push my first rib down some to free up the space and allow blood flow - he exerts a lot of pressure, pushing down on that area....Is that how this is treated?
4) Any opinions about a Chiropractor?
