Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville Diagnoses Underlying Causes of Neck Pain and Arm Pain and Delivers Pain Relieving Care

“What is this, doc?” Such a question is always welcome at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a terrific starting point though. These queries typically come up at some point in the exam but occasionally occur during a chiropractic treatment visit. They always reveal something helpful toward pain relief that both your St. Francisville chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may show themselves via curious symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain concurrent with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville relies on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your St. Francisville chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in light of the first two. Each adds a piece of data to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent chiropractic case report, a piece of the puzzle arose from a peculiar rash on a patient’s arm during his treatment plan for neck and arm pain. His story entails coughing, fatigue, and congestion that guided him to his primary care doctor. He received an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing provoked some neck pain that led this 43 year old male to his chiropractor for the neck pain that was explained 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 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 consultant diagnosed as herpes zoster shingles. Since it was too late to take an antiviral he took ibuprofen for the pain related to shingles. He experienced 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 lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments in 3 months resulted in 80% decreased neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient felt he was back to normal. (1) Talk about unusual!
