Chiropractic Care Diagnoses Underlying Causes of Neck Pain and Arm Pain and Delivers Pain Relieving Care

“What’s this, doc?” Such a question is always welcome at Chiropractic Care. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a great starting point though. These inquiries usually turn up in the course of the examination but occasionally occur during a chiropractic treatment visit. They always tell something useful toward pain relief that both your West Palm Beach chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may present themselves via interesting symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Chiropractic Care depends on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in light of the first two. Each provides a piece of information to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent chiropractic case report, a part of the puzzle arose from a strange rash on a patient’s arm during his care for neck and arm pain. His story encompasses coughing, fatigue, and congestion that guided him to his primary care doctor. He got an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing provoked some neck pain that took this 43 year old man to his chiropractor for the neck pain that was explained as constant, sharp neck pain on the left with an aching, tingling sensation down his left arm (radiculopathy) particularly into his left lateral arm, forearm, thumb and index finger. Clinical symptoms lead to a diagnosis of a C5-6 disc herniation, a very common cervical disc herniation level. Soon after, he noted a rash on his left arm that his medical doctor diagnosed as herpes zoster shingles. Since it was too late to take an antiviral he took ibuprofen for the shingles pain. He underwent 5 cervical spine treatments following the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management cervical spine protocols in 5 weeks to resolve the arm pain, reduce the arm rash, and lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments over 12 weeks resulted in 80% less neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient felt he was back to normal. (1) Talk about unusual!
