Back And Neck Care 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 Back And Neck Care Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a terrific starting point though. These queries usually turn up at some point in the examination but sometimes come up during a chiropractic treatment visit. They most times reveal something useful toward pain relief that both your Severna Park chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Interesting conditions may reveal themselves via curious symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain and a case of shingles.


Back And Neck Care Center depends on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Severna Park chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in consideration of the first two. Each lends a piece of data to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent chiropractic case report, a part 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 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) specifically into his left lateral arm, forearm, thumb and index finger. Clinical symptoms lead to a diagnosis of a C5-6 disc herniation, the most common cervical disc herniation level. Later on, 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 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 resolve the arm pain, decrease the arm rash, and lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments in 3 months brought about 80% reduced neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient felt he was back to normal. (1) Talk about unusual!
