Many people seek physical therapy and chiropractic care when they have been suffering from pain or limited motion that negatively impacts their daily activities. Whether receiving care after an accident or another event, these types of ongoing therapies can help patients improve their range of movement and treat acute or chronic pain conditions.
Some specially-trained chiropractic professionals offer physical therapy services as part of their overall chiropractic care in order to promote total wellness. By providing both chiropractic adjustments and specialized exercises for continued improvement, Los Angeles chiropractic professional, Dr. Frank C Derratt can help those who are experiencing acute or chronic pain reduce discomfort, improve motion, and get back to the joys of daily living.
Benefits of Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care
The main difference between the work of a physical therapist and a chiropractor is that the physical therapist specializes in joint mobilization while a chiropractor has received extensive training in joint manipulation. Some conditions do no respond to joint mobilization, meaning that physical therapy alone does not work as a treatment option. Often times those who don’t see results from a physical therapist visit will benefit from working with a chiropractor.
In addition, many physical therapy patients find that their recovery is more successful when they seek chiropractic care in conjunction with their physical therapy sessions. Though there is a difference between the care that a physical therapist and licensed chiropractor provide, our experienced chiropractic office offers services that go beyond adjustments by providing patients with exercises for continued therapy. The key to healing and total wellness is to work with a chiropractor who provides physical therapy options.
