Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 Palmer Chiropractic Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a great discussion starter though. These questions usually turn up at some point in the examination but occasionally come up during a chiropractic office visit. They most times disclose something useful toward pain relief that both your Lynchburg chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may present themselves via curious symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain and a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Palmer Chiropractic Center counts on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your Lynchburg chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in light of the first two. Each provides a bit of data to the diagnostic puzzle. In a newly published chiropractic case report, a piece of the puzzle arose from a strange rash on a patient’s arm during his care 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 led 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 down 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, a very common cervical disc herniation level. Soon after, he saw 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 in 3 months 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.
