Yes, they both have their place, but they are not the same thing. It does not necessarily mean that Chiropractic Care is better than Physical Therapy, and vice versa. It’s just that they are different tools used to solve different problems.
Physical therapy is most often used to focus on rehabilitating muscles and joints to provide full function and range of motion. This rehab is done by focusing specifically on the joint and/or muscle. On the other hand, chiropractic medicine focuses on mobility rehabilitation of the entire body, often through manipulation of the spine. Chiropractic care tends to focus on full-body health and the interaction between your spine and the rest of your body as opposed to focusing on a single joint.
Both of these professions are filling a great need and can be used in tandem in some cases to achieve the best possible results. Just because you’ve tried physical therapy and it didn’t work, it does not mean that chiropractic care won’t work either. Because chiropractic medicine focuses on full-body health, experienced chiropractors, like the ones here at Arizona HealthPros in Phoenix, will evaluate your situation and determine if spinal manipulation can be used to fix the problem that you’re facing.
The bottom line is this. Don’t count out chiropractic medicine as the solution if physical therapy did not work. Call us today to schedule a chiropractic care consultation and find out if we can help you get back on track.
