Pflugerville Wellness 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 Pflugerville Wellness Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a terrific discussion starter though. These queries usually occur in the course of the exam but sometimes come up during a chiropractic office visit. They most times tell something useful toward pain relief that both your Pflugerville chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may show themselves via curious symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain and a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Pflugerville Wellness Center relies on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Pflugerville 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 newly published 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 involves 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 took 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 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, the most common cervical disc herniation level. Soon after, he noticed a rash on his left arm that his medical doctor identified as herpes zoster shingles. Since it was too late to take an antiviral 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 reduce the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments in 3 months brought about 80% decreased neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient felt he was back to normal. (1) Talk about unusual!
