According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), physical therapy, manual therapy, and physiotherapy are some of the most effective conservative treatments for pain management. All of these physical therapy specialties are interconnected and are often used in combination to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.

Chiropractors vs. Physical Therapists: What's the Difference?

Physical therapy encompasses a wide variety of treatment modalities that are used to help patients reduce pain, improve physical function, and recover from injuries.

Physical therapists are board-certified clinical specialists with advanced degrees and extensive clinical experience. In order to become a physical therapist, individuals must complete a rigorous physical therapy education and training program that includes a doctor of physical therapy degree (DPT).

Meanwhile, chiropractors are licensed professionals who have completed extensive clinical education and training in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractors receive extensive training in both physical and manual therapies, such as chiropractic adjustments, spinal manipulation, and soft tissue mobilization.

The work of physical therapists varies depending on the patient's individual needs. However, most physical therapists and chiropractors use a combination of hands-on therapies and exercises to help their patients reduce pain, improve function, and prevent further injury.

Our Holistic Approach to Physical Therapy

At Active Family Chiropractic, we take a holistic approach to physical therapy that addresses the mind, body, and spirit. We believe that true healing can only occur when all three of these elements are in balance.

We take the time to get to know our patients on a personal level so that we can understand their unique needs and goals. This allows us to develop customized treatment plans that address the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction, rather than just treating the symptoms.

Our physical therapy treatments are designed to promote the body's natural ability to heal itself. We use a combination of manual therapies, therapeutic exercises, and lifestyle counseling to help our patients achieve their health and wellness goals.

Our Wide Range of Physical Therapy Services

At Active Family Chiropractic, we provide a hands-on approach to physical treatment that involves a wide range of services, including:

Manual Therapies

We use a variety of manual therapies, such as chiropractic adjustments, spinal manipulation, and soft tissue mobilization, to help our patients reduce pain and improve function. Our clinical practice guidelines are based on the latest evidence-based research so that we can provide our patients with the best possible care.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a type of physical therapy that uses sound waves to reduce pain and inflammation. It is often used to treat conditions such as tendonitis, bursitis, and muscle spasms. At Active Family Chiropractic, we use ultrasound therapy as part of our conservative approach to pain management.

Muscle Stimulation

Muscle stimulation is a type of physical therapy that uses electrical impulses to relax muscles and reduce pain. It is often used to treat conditions such as muscle spasms, strains, and sprains. Whether you are experiencing acute or chronic pain, muscle stimulation can be an effective treatment option.

Therapeutic Exercises

Therapeutic exercises are an important part of our physical therapy treatments. We design our exercise programs specifically for each patient so that they can safely and effectively achieve their rehabilitation goals. We also incorporate a lot of at-home therapy and exercises to promote functional mobility, flexibility, strength, and endurance.

Lifestyle Counseling

We believe that patient education is an important part of physical therapy. We take the time to educate our patients about their condition and how they can manage their pain through lifestyle changes. We also provide guidance on nutrition, stress management, and injury prevention. Active Family Chiropractic is committed to helping our patients achieve their long-term health and wellness goals.
