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

“What is this, doc?” A question like this is always welcome at New Roads Chiropractic Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a great discussion starter though. These inquiries typically surface at some point in the exam but sometimes surface during a chiropractic office visit. They most times disclose something useful toward pain relief that both your New Roads chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Interesting conditions may reveal themselves via interesting symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain and a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

New Roads Chiropractic Center counts on the clinical exam above anything else. Your New Roads chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in consideration of the first two. Each provides a piece of info to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent chiropractic case report, a part of the puzzle came from a peculiar rash on a patient’s arm during his treatment plan for neck and arm pain. His story encompasses coughing, fatigue, and congestion that led him to his primary care doctor. He got an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing provoked some neck pain that led this 43 year old man 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) particularly into his left lateral arm, forearm, thumb and index finger. Clinical symptoms indicated a diagnosis of a C5-6 disc herniation, the most common cervical disc herniation level. Later on, he noted a rash on his left arm that his medical doctor 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, decrease the arm rash, and lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments in 3 months brought about 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!
