I was reading your post over on the Neurology forum. They way your being treated is generally the way you want to go about it, with conservative treatments, because they can help. Have they offered to send you to Physical Therapy as well?

And you're right, your hand symptoms are probably coming from your neck. You haven't had an EMG have you?

My cousin had extremely good results from a chiropractor for this same situation. It only took 3 or 4 visits before the pain was under control. Another option would be physical therapy, but usually a good chiro doc will give you stretching excercises to do at home anyway to further your improvement. Good luck!
