The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a great starting point though. These questions typically surface in the course of the exam but sometimes occur during a chiropractic treatment visit. They always disclose something helpful toward pain relief that both your Colorado Springs chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may reveal themselves via interesting symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain and a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR depends on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Colorado Springs chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in light of the first two. Each adds a piece of info to the diagnostic puzzle. In a newly published chiropractic case report, a piece of the puzzle came from a strange rash on a patient’s arm during his care for neck and arm pain. His story encompasses 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 explained 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 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 resolve the arm pain, decrease the arm rash, and lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments over 12 weeks brought about 80% reduced neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient expressed that he was back to normal.
