Physical Therapy Q & A

How Are Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Related?

For many years, there’s been something of a conflict and competition between physical therapists and chiropractors. Both are focused on recovery from injury, healing, restoration of flexibility and range of motion, and regaining a sense of wellness and normalcy. The truth is, physical therapy and chiropractic can work together as important parts of a patient’s recovery process.

How Do They Work Together?

Chiropractors focus on a whole-body approach to health and wellness, focused on how the spine is the center of the body’s signal system. They focus on how the signals sent to and from the spine affect the body’s mobility and functionality. By controlling pain and addressing soft tissue issues and spinal adjustments, chiropractors help patients regain a sense of normalcy.

Physical therapists, on the other hand, focus on exercise, rebuilding strength and restoring limited mobility through activity and working the damaged joints, muscles, tendons and other damaged areas. The two end up functioning very well as a part of a patient’s overall health and wellness team.

More often every day, physical therapists and chiropractors are working together to help patients regain a sense of well-being and functionality that they previously lacked. When used properly in conjunction, chiropractic and PT can often not only restore motion and sensation but can provide a sense of wellness that the patient has never felt before.

Where Can Patients Find Facilities?

Today, the best chiropractors and physical therapists work together to combine exercise and spinal manipulation to provide a complete, non-invasive and natural approach to rehabilitation, health, and healing for all patients in a way never before seen.
