Chiropractic Care in Bel Air, MD

Chiropractic is based on the idea that total body health depends on a nervous system functioning properly. As we go through life, our bodies are subjected to many types of stress including anything from big insults like car accidents or falls to repetitive stresses like how we sit, stand, and walk. Combined with the regular stress of life, all of these occurrences affect the way our bodies move, especially the joints and the spine. This causes the joints to stop functioning properly and break down which may irritate spinal nerves that causes not only pain and discomfort, but impacts our overall health as well. Chiropractors locate the area of concern and apply gentle adjustments to correct these joints.

Why Chiropractic?

To treat pain & injuries

Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective method of treating pain and injuries. At Susquehanna Spine & Rehab, we provide a personalized treatment plan for each patient to tend to his/her own needs. Your treatment plan will pair the latest in Chiropractic care with Physical Therapy for optimum results. Chiropractic care is also a great way to keep your body out of pain. Let’s face it… who wants to live in pain?

The pain is a symptom, not the problem…

When the check engine light in your car comes on, it’s telling you there is a problem with the car. The problem itself isn’t the light. Pain is the “check engine” light of your body. It’s your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong!

When the light comes on in your car, you have two choices: you can drive it around to see if it will go off by itself, or you can take it to a professional. Likewise, when you are experiencing pain or discomfort, you can just wait and see what happens, or you can consult a professional. Quite often problems that are causing your pain do not just “go away.”

To Improve Body Function

Chiropractic adjustments are an excellent tool for keeping your body functioning and performing at its peak level.

The spine is made up of 24 vertebrae and discs stacked on top of each other with nerves in between. Those nerves that transmit important signals throughout the body. If one of those nerves becomes irritated; the pressure on the nerve prevents the proper signals from being sent to other areas of the body, and it may also cause pain, numbness, or weakness.

Think of it this way: To function properly, your home depends on an uninterrupted supply of electricity to travel through the power lines. If something interferes with the transmission of electricity, power is lessened or lost. Likewise, the body’s organs are directed by nerve impulses that travel through the nervous system (brain and nerves). Back problems can cause nerve signals to be lessened or lost. When the spine functions properly, the nerves can deliver normal nerve impulses and preform their intended function.

I have been having severe pain since 2014. I’ve had a full battery of x-rays/MRI done to diagnose my condition [as] severe arthritis. After I was prescribed an injection that I was told would take care of everything, the pain was back, worse than before. Dr. Lee reviewed my x-rays and MRI and set up a treatment plan... After the 1st visit my pain has decreased. I can already feel a big difference.

Before coming to Dr. Lee, my ankle pain would wake me up during the night because of its severity. Dr. Lee has helped alleviate the pain in my ankle. By performing specific exercises twice per week, the pain is non-existent!

I have been a patient of Dr.Lee's for about 10 months now. As a 22 year old, I have been suffering from back pain since I was about 13 years old. The pain increased a few years ago and despite physical therapy performed at other facilities, and pain medications from the doctor I was unable to control the level of discomfort. I found Dr. Lee and have been extremely happy with my results.

Dennet L.

I came to Dr. Lee with several aches and pains. I was nervous about receiving chiropractic treatment but Dr. Lee eased my concerns by thoroughly making sure that I was a safe candidate for adjustments... After regular adjustments and Physical Therapy, my knee pain is gone, my elbow pain is gone, my ankle and wrist are improving AND I’m reducing the migraines I used to get too!

Amy, 31

I began seeing Dr. Lee after noticing severe tenderness and pain in my left hip region... I was lucky to find Dr. Lee when I did, not only did he help me discover that the pain in my hip was actually related to a mass growing uncontrollably but he also gave me the comfort I’d been searching for with chiropractic. I’d recommend Dr. Lee to anyone who wants to be pain-free!

Pam, 19

I have had lower back problems for about 35 years. As I aged, they were getting worse. I also noticed I was over weight. I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab because Dr. Lee could address both issues as part of a unified plan. The diet regimen, chiropractic, and personalized exercises worked!

Tony, 63

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had pain in my neck and shoulders... Now that I’m an adult, my pain continues, but Dr. Lee is helping me a lot. I have an appointment twice a week, and I can definitely tell a difference. I use pain management along with the tens unit and physical therapy. All three of these services are working great and I’m definitely feeling better.

Andrea, 28

I have had back problems for years. I have been to other chiropractors I have even gone to medical doctors no one has been able to make it feel any better. Then I found Dr. Lee I have finally found relief. I am feeling so much better after starting care at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab.

S. age 60

I began seeing Dr. Lee because of a shooting pain I developed in my left heel... After a brief examination, Dr. Lee explained to me that my pain was being caused by Plantar Fasciitis... Shortly after Dr. Lee began treating my heel, I noticed that I was experiencing less and less discomfort. In a few short weeks, I was able to continue my exercise routine and enjoy my daily activities pain-free!

Randy, 25

When I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab I was very skeptical. After only 2 weeks at Susquehanna Spine and Rehab the severe pain in my neck, shoulder and arm had greatly improved … NO MORE PAIN! I can now sleep through the night without waking up in pain! THANK YOU SUSQUEHANNA SPINE & REHAB!!!

My daughter started falling up the stairs at school and having severe knee pain for no apparent reason... Dr. Lee did a thorough exam and walked us through his entire treatment plan. Every appointment was made at a time convenient to my schedule. Heather has made wonderful progress and is now pain-free. Dr. Lee was always available for questions and kept me well informed of her progress.

Heather, 13

I have been to too many chiropractors to count in five different states and this is the best chiropractor I have been to so far.
