Satterwhite 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 Satterwhite Chiropractic. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a great starting point though. These questions usually turn up at some point in the exam but occasionally occur during a chiropractic office visit. They most times tell something useful toward pain relief that both your Oxford chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may show themselves via interesting symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Satterwhite Chiropractic counts on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your Oxford 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 newly published chiropractic case report, a piece of the puzzle arose from a strange 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 got an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing prompted some neck pain that led 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 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, the most common cervical disc herniation level. Soon after, he noted 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 pain related to shingles. 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 over 12 weeks resulted in 80% decreased neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient expressed that he was back to normal.
