Chiropractor vs Physical Therapist

We’re often asked about the benefits of a Chiropractor vs Physical Therapy.

In most cases, these two disciplines are not mutually exclusive, but rather mutually beneficial.

By combining the benefits, patients can expect to accelerate healing with better, long lasting results.

The main goal of a chiropractor is to facilitate the spine, (the link to our entire nervous system), to operate at maximum efficiency. That is primarily done with chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, traction and various other methods to attain proper spinal alignment.

Ideal spinal alignment allows an individual to assume standing posture with minimal muscular energy expenditure. This ideal alignment should permit an extended pain-free erect position, without putting undo stress on the nervous system.

Because our spine is our communication link to our entire body, mis-alignment can often cause pain in areas that the average person would not associate with the spine, for example, headaches or leg pain.

Physiotherapists, or physical therapists, are experts trained specifically to improve movement and function, relieve pain, and expand movement potential.

A large part of a physical therapist’s program is directed at preventing injury, loss of movement, and post-surgical healing.

Movement is life, and all injuries benefit from controlled exercises and movements administered by a qualified physical therapist.

Physical therapy, depending on the nature of the injury, can be more successful when employing innovative techniques, such as vibration therapy to expedite the healing process, without applying undo stress on the injury.

Ultimate Medical Group is a multi-disciplinary clinic. We believe that when comparing a chiropractor vs a physiotherapist, you will find that these two unique areas of expertise are maximally effective when used in conjunction with one another.
