How You Can Benefit From Manual And Physical Therapy To Recover From An Injury?
Physical Therapy & Chiropractic care are amongst the most popular forms of treatment of injuries and chronic pain nowadays. Physical Therapy and Chiropractic are two disciplines that, combined, can promote great results for your health. In this post we will talk about it in depth.
Combining a treatment that includes both physical therapy and chiropractic treatments can help you achieve a greater state of well-being much faster. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that these two types of treatments provide better results when combined to be able to join forces for your health.
By now you may be wondering what’s the difference between Physical Therapy and Chiropractic treatments? One difference between the two is that a Physical Therapist holds a University Degree, while a Chiropractor holds a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
These therapies can work in different ways, yet they combine perfectly together.
Physical therapy treatment may include:
Evaluate pain, flexibility, and movement.
Exercises, stretches, or manipulation to help you move better.
Posture education to avoid injuries or pain.
Heat or cold therapy to reduce pain.
Wellness plan to better overall health.
On the other hand, a chiropractor may:
Complete a Full Examination and Evaluate Symptoms.
Provide adjustments and soft tissue manipulation to areas of the body and spinal manipulation to reduce pain and inflammation.
Provide laser therapy to reduce inflammation and increase mobility
Refer you to additional treatments such as Massage Therapy, Acupuncture or Functional Medicine for a whole body approach to your recovery.
Recommend certain strengthening exercises or lifestyle adjustments.
As you can see, these two go hand-in-hand, if you have the time and means to combine the two of them, it is the best option. Chiropractic and Physical Therapy work well in conjunction. Chiropractic therapy helps by releasing tension from the nervous system. This can significantly reduce chronic pain and ailments, as pressure can build up generating all sorts of problems in the rest of the body.
