Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center Diagnoses Underlying Causes of Neck Pain and Arm Pain and Delivers Pain Relieving Care

“What’s this, doc?” Such a question is always welcome at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a great discussion starter though. These queries typically occur during the examination but occasionally occur during a chiropractic office visit. They always tell something helpful toward pain relief that both your Pensacola chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may reveal themselves via curious symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain and a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center relies on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your Pensacola 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 part of the puzzle came from a peculiar rash on a patient’s arm during his care for neck and arm pain. His story encompasses coughing, fatigue, and congestion that guided him to his primary care doctor. He received an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing provoked 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) 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. Later on, he noted a rash on his left arm that his medical doctor identified as herpes zoster shingles. It was too late for an antiviral, so he took ibuprofen for the pain related to shingles. 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 lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments over 12 weeks resulted in 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!
