Preamble: many of these issues are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then the larger issues often take care of themselves and you can focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice and more family time.

“Cervical Tumor”

Metastacic or Osteomyelitis…Not Sure yet
"I just want to be the truth” Mark Studin 2018

This is from Brandon Buckley from North Carolina, who I have asked to write this up as a case history.

Had a 27 year-old female with neck pain of 2 months duration (woke up with it) with intermittent (started the day before the initial visit) "mild" tingling in her right shoulder. She had been to the ER the day she woke up with these symptoms, chief complaint neck pain following the flu. She was given Tamiflu, neck exercises and released without any imaging. 

Sent her for an x ray,

On her second visit I ordered an MRI. I had to fight for it through the carrier who denied it initially. 

Below look at that inflammation. She had some tenderness but nothing more or perhaps less than I have seen in my MVA trauma cases.

 Since one of the DD was infection I sent her to the ED. She is currently awaiting biopsy results and seeing an oncologist. Your program changed the way I look at cases and that most likely saved this 27 year-old mother’s life.

Thank You,

Brandon R. Burkley, D.C.
