Layden Chiropractic 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 Layden Chiropractic. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a great discussion starter though. These inquiries usually come up at some point in the exam but sometimes occur during a chiropractic office visit. They most times tell something useful toward pain relief that both your Plainville chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may show themselves via interesting symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain concurrent with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Layden Chiropractic relies on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Plainville chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in light of the first two. Each provides 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 led him to his primary care doctor. He received 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) 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 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 experienced 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 reduce 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!
