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

“What’s this, doc?” A question like this is always welcome at Wilson Family Chiropractic. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a terrific discussion starter though. These questions usually come up during the exam but occasionally surface during a chiropractic office visit. They most times tell something helpful toward pain relief that both your Millville chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Interesting conditions may present themselves via curious symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain concurrent with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Wilson Family Chiropractic counts on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Millville chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in light of the first two. Each lends a bit of info to the diagnostic puzzle. In a newly published chiropractic case report, a part of the puzzle came from a strange rash on a patient’s arm during his treatment plan 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 prompted some neck pain that took this 43 year old male to his chiropractor for the neck pain that was described as constant, sharp neck pain on the left with an aching, tingling sensation extending into his left arm (radiculopathy) specifically 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. Later on, he noticed a rash on his left arm that his medical consultant identified as herpes zoster shingles. It was too late for an antiviral, so 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 ease and get rid of the arm pain, reduce the arm rash, and reduce the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments over 12 weeks brought about 80% decreased neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient expressed that he was back to normal. (1) Talk about unusual!
