Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Diagnoses Underlying Causes of Neck Pain and Arm Pain and Delivers Pain Relieving Care

“What is this, doc?” A question like this is always welcome at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a great starting point though. These queries typically turn up in the course of the exam but sometimes occur during a chiropractic office visit. They most times disclose something useful toward pain relief that both your Manahawkin 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 concurrent with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center depends on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your Manahawkin chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in consideration of the first two. Each lends a bit of info to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent chiropractic case report, a part of the puzzle came from a strange rash on a patient’s arm during his care for neck and arm pain. His story involves coughing, fatigue, and congestion that guided him to his primary care doctor. He received 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 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, a very common cervical disc herniation level. Later on, he saw 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 shingles pain. 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, reduce the arm rash, and lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments over 12 weeks 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!
