Physiotherapists are trained in musculoskeletal assessment, treatment, strengthening and conditioning principles. They can treat both acute injuries and chronic conditions.
WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
WHY SHOULD I ADD PHYSIOTHERAPY TO MY CHIROPRACTIC REGIME?
Chiropractors are experts in joint mobility, while Physiotherapists are experts in rehabilitation and conditioning. Though they each have knowledge in both areas, they will zone in on their field of expertise.
Through a combination of hands-on care including joint and soft tissue mobilization, and an emphasis on stretching, and corrective exercises, physiotherapists can guide your rehabilitation to restore the body’s proper function!
