Dr. Kindra J. Ingram, Chiropractor, is a Silver Spring native, whose passion has always been to provide help for individuals in need. It was not until her final year at Spelman College, in Atlanta Georgia, did she developed a specific interest in health care forms which used a natural approach to healing. After attending a seminar on Chiropractic health care she felt that she could make a difference in this field as well as help people heal from sickness and injury by using this natural approach. This is when she decided to choose a career as a Chiropractor. Once she obtained her Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Biology from Spelman College, she was off to Chiropractic school. Dr. Ingram attended and completed her degree, Doctor of Chiropractic at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Once she obtained her degree and passed all of her National and State Licensing Boards, she decided to open her own practice in Downtown Silver Spring, servicing the same area where she is originally from.
In addition to her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, Dr. Ingram also has a Masters of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation from Logan College of Chiropractic and University programs. This degree allows her to work closely with athletic institutions of all kinds with on-field care/treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries. In addition it also allows her to implement injury prevention and maintenance programs into sports programs.
Dr. Ingram currently holds licenses in Washington, DC and in Maryland, serving patients from the Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC areas. Her focus is to treat and give the best possible care to all of her patients. She treats patients of all age ranges, as well as athletes and dancers. The Chiropractic techniques currently practiced are Diversified, Thompson Technique, and Activator. In addition some of the Physical Therapy techniques used are SASTM (Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Technique, a technique to break scar tissue adhesions), Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Hydrotherapy and much more! Dr. Ingram couples Chiropractic Adjustments with Physical Therapy techniques because she believes that those are some of the most effective methods used to produce healing of most musculoskeletal injuries.
