Moses 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 Moses Chiropractic. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a terrific discussion starter though. These inquiries typically occur at some point in the exam but sometimes come up during a chiropractic treatment visit. They always reveal something helpful toward pain relief that both your West Palm Beach chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Interesting conditions may show themselves via interesting symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Moses Chiropractic counts on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in consideration of the first two. Each lends a bit 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 received an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing provoked some neck pain that took 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, 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, decrease the arm rash, and lessen 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 expressed that he was back to normal.
