Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Sometimes there is a clear answer, and sometimes there is not. It’s a terrific discussion starter though. These questions usually occur during the exam but occasionally surface during a chiropractic treatment visit. They most times reveal something helpful toward pain relief that both your Toronto 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.

CHIROPRACTIC EXAM AND TREATMENT

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre depends on the clinical exam above anything else. Your Toronto chiropractor listens first, tests second, and considers imaging in consideration of the first two. Each adds a piece of info to the diagnostic puzzle. In a recent chiropractic case report, a piece of the puzzle arose 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 guided him to his primary care doctor. He got an influenza and pneumococcal vaccine. The coughing provoked some neck pain that took 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 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, the most common cervical disc herniation level. Later on, he noticed a rash on his left arm that his medical consultant diagnosed 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, decrease the arm rash, and lessen the neck pain by 50%. Another 4 treatments over 12 weeks resulted in 80% less neck pain, complete resolution of left arm pain, and faint shingles rash. The patient expressed that he was back to normal.

Dr. Baroody’s exam found a cervical disc herniation as a cause for his pain. It’s not surprising, then, that the other treatments resulted in no relief!
