Carpal Tunnel Treatment in Bel Air, MD

What does it feel like?

Most patients complain of numbness, tingling, pain and/or weakness in the hand. This may manifest itself in painful pressure points near finger joints, or even a burning sensation. Pain can also occur in the arm between the elbow and wrist. Because symptoms can vary greatly between individuals and due to the specific cause(s) for each person, it is best to schedule an examination or consultation with your doctor or chiropractor to determine what type of carpal tunnel treatment may be best.

How is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treated?

Carpal tunnel can be treated without surgery?  Yes in some cases.  There are many different causes for carpal tunnel syndrome to occur.  In some cases non-surgical therapies can be used to heal the area.  Early treatment is key before more damage is done.

Pressure anywhere along the nerve in the area can cause the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome to occur.

First our doctors will do a comprehensive exam to pinpoint the problem area and form a treatment plan to focus on healing the muscles.

Carpal tunnel treatment employs an array of treatment modalities including ultrasound, ice or heat, and/or electrical stimulation these will control and alleviate pain and inflammation. Manual therapy and massage, therapy will concentrate on the affected muscles.  Chiropractic adjustments to the shoulder and elbow will ensure that the joints are working properly. You can adjust other areas beside the spine?  Yes any joint can be adjusted and our Doctors have had training in adjusting all areas.  Acupuncture is also another option to add to the treatment plan. Once the pain is controlled and the area is healed then we will begin rehabilitative physical therapy exercises to insure the joints and muscles are functioning properly to prevent the symptoms from returning.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

A nerve and several tendons run down the arm and through a small space in the wrist called the “carpal tunnel.” This area in the wrist can become narrower through swelling from overuse or injury. The nerve and tendons are then compressed in this narrow space. When the nerves and tendons are compressed this is when the symptoms of pain, discomfort, numbness, tingling, difficulty in using the hand will occur.

How is Carpel Tunnel Syndrome caused?

Just because you feel the symptoms in your wrist or hand does not mean that is where the problems starts.  While the majority of the symptoms (pain, neuropathy-numbness, tingling, burning and/or weakness) come from compression in the carpal tunnel, the cause can sometimes come from functional issues in the hand, wrist, arm and/or neck. Remember the wrist is connected to the arm which is connected at the neck.  Problems can occur anywhere and cause symptoms up or down the chain.

Causes include injury and trauma such as an auto accident however the most common being over-use and mis-use, such as from typing and texting.


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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
