Pain Management Q & A

What is the difference between chronic and acute pain?

  • Chronic pain is pain that persists for weeks, months, and sometimes years. It may have initially been caused by a specific incident, such as a car accident, or by an on-going condition like arthritis or cancer. Millions of Americans suffer from chronic pain, which has led to a serious epidemic of prescription painkiller addictions.
  • Acute pain is the body's response to an injury, such as a burn, cut, broken bone or dental work. Usually, acute pain starts suddenly and goes away. It can be mild or severe and last for moments or several months, but acute pain rarely lasts more than six months.

What types of pain can Dr. Inlow manage?

Chiropractic treatment is effective in alleviating most types of chronic or acute pain caused by musculoskeletal issues. Among those most commonly treated are:

  • Headaches
  • Whiplash and other types of neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain, caused by arthritis or other issues
  • Pinched nerves and sciatic pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder dislocations
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Fibromyalgia
