We often hear the question "Is there a difference between Chiropractic Care and Physical Therapy"? Yes, there IS a difference! Chiropractors and Physical Therapists help treat different injuries and symptoms that a patient may be facing. Chiropractors are medical professionals who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. Physical Therapists are medical professionals who assist patients in restoring mobility and function (cases may be due to aging, trauma or disease).
Doctors of Chiropractic have evidence to support their expertise in adjustment of the spine. Physical Therapist have evidence to support their expertise in human movement and restoration of movement related dysfunctions.
