Most Chiropractic Clinic 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 Most Chiropractic Clinic. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It is a great starting point though. These inquiries usually turn up in the course of the examination but sometimes occur during a chiropractic treatment visit. They most times disclose something helpful toward pain relief that both your Murfreesboro 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.


Most Chiropractic Clinic relies on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Murfreesboro 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 piece of the puzzle came from a strange rash on a patient’s arm during his care for neck and arm pain. His story involves coughing, fatigue, and congestion that guided 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 man 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 indicated a diagnosis of a C5-6 disc herniation, a very common cervical disc herniation level. Soon after, he saw a rash on his left arm that his medical consultant 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 ease and get rid of the arm pain, decrease the arm rash, and decrease 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 felt he was back to normal. (1) Talk about unusual!
