our Sun creates a Heliosphere of Solar Wind which is material/light emitted from the 360 degree surface of our Star...
as the Sun & Heliosphere orbit the Galaxy Center.... the area directly in front of the Sun (slamming into empty space) the front edge of the Heliosphere creates a Bow-Wave (much like a ship at sea)

Even if the effect you describe did produce some acceleration it would be negligible. More importantly it still wouldn't explain how the stars manage to stay in orbit around the galaxy while moving at such speeds. That is why we postulate there must be some sort of invisible mass holding them in place.
