Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center Diagnoses Underlying Causes of Neck Pain and Arm Pain and Delivers Pain Relieving Care

“What’s this, doc?” A question like this is always welcome at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a terrific discussion starter though. These questions typically occur during the exam but sometimes surface during a chiropractic office visit. They always tell something helpful toward pain relief that both your Paramus 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 with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center depends on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Paramus chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in consideration of the first two. Each provides a piece of information to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent chiropractic case report, a piece of the puzzle came from a peculiar rash on a patient’s arm during his care 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 triggered some neck pain that took 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 extending into his left arm (radiculopathy) particularly into his left lateral arm, forearm, thumb and index finger. Clinical symptoms lead to a diagnosis of a C5-6 disc herniation, a very common cervical disc herniation level. Soon after, he noticed 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 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, reduce the arm rash, and lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments in 3 months 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.
