Chiropractic Care Q & A

What Is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractors use their hands to make spinal adjustments and manipulate soft tissue to restore and maintain proper alignment in the body. The term “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (practice). In addition to performing manual manipulations, Dr. Inlow uses a number of other tools in his practice. These include acupuncture, physical therapy, traction devices, electrical stimulation, nutrient and ergonomic advice. Valley Chiropractic & Sports Medicine utilizes the latest in chiropractic equipment to facilitate quick and enduring recovery.

What types of injuries and conditions can be treated with chiropractic care?

From headaches to foot pain, and numerous ailments in between, chiropractic treatment provides relief from numerous issues. Among the most common are:

  • Back pain, which affects 60% to 80% of the adult population in the United States.
  • Neck pain, which is usually caused by overuse (such as sitting at a computer too long), but also accidents. Chiropractic treatment is frequently used to alleviate whiplash pain. Whiplash is a neck injury often sustained during car accidents.
  • Headaches and migraines, often caused by muscle tension in the neck, can be remedied through spinal adjustments.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, an injury caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist, can be relieved through manual manipulation of the wrist, elbow, and upper spine.

Other ailments chiropractic care is frequently used to treat includes: ligament and joint pain, shoulder pain and foot pain.

What are the advantages of chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractic care is natural, less risky, and often less costly than other common remedies, such as prescription medication or surgery. Chiropractic treatments also address the problem, not just the symptoms, and provide prevention from future injuries.
