The Novelli Wellness 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 The Novelli Wellness Center. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a great starting point though. These questions usually occur in the course of the examination but sometimes come up during a chiropractic office visit. They always reveal something useful toward pain relief that both your Buffalo, NY chiropractor wants for you and you want for yourself. Curious conditions may reveal themselves via curious symptoms like this case of cervical spine neck pain concurrent with a case of shingles.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

The Novelli Wellness Center depends on the clinical exam more than anything else. Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in light of the first two. Each provides a piece of information to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent 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 encompasses 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 man 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 indicated a diagnosis of a C5-6 disc herniation, the most common cervical disc herniation level. Soon after, he noted a rash on his left arm that his medical doctor diagnosed 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 resulted in 80% reduced neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient expressed that he was back to normal.
