Chiropractic Solutions 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 Chiropractic Solutions. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a great starting point though. These inquiries typically surface at some point in the exam but sometimes occur during a chiropractic treatment visit. They always tell something useful toward pain relief that both your San Jose 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 concurrent with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Chiropractic Solutions counts on the clinical exam above anything else. Your San Jose chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in consideration of the first two. Each lends a piece of information 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 led him to his primary care doctor. He got an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing triggered 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 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, the most common cervical disc herniation level. Later on, he noted a rash on his left arm that his medical doctor diagnosed as herpes zoster shingles. It was too late for an antiviral, so he took ibuprofen for the pain related to shingles. 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, decrease 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 felt he was back to normal.
