Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a great starting point though. These inquiries usually surface at some point in the examination but sometimes come up during a chiropractic office visit. They most times disclose something helpful toward pain relief that both your Montreal chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may present themselves via interesting symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic relies on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Montreal 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 recent chiropractic case report, a part of the puzzle arose from a peculiar rash on a patient’s arm during his care for neck and arm pain. His story encompasses coughing, fatigue, and congestion that guided 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 man to his chiropractor for the neck pain that was explained 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. Later on, he saw a rash on his left arm that his medical consultant identified as herpes zoster shingles. It was too late for an antiviral, so he took ibuprofen for the shingles pain. 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 decrease 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 expressed that he was back to normal.
