Here is another interesting case that walked into ChiroCarolina®:
A 46 year old white male patient presents to the office with a two week recent onset of 6 out of 10 right sided mid back pain with radiating symptoms into his right/left scapulae and right flank region. He has no history of trauma to his mid back, but does report that approximately 6 years ago he suffered disc bulges and herniations at T6, T7, and T8 disc levels after an episode of lifting weights and progressive 9 out of 10 mid back pain and numbness across his shoulder blades. He did go on for evaluation and subsequent treatment with his orthopedic, which relieved the symptomatology to a 2 out of 10 VRS pain with medication and physical therapy. This regiment of therapy lasted a period of 10 weeks.
