You can use physical therapy and structural chiropractic together to work on the skeletal and muscular system. However, their is a distinct difference between the professions.
Structural Chiropractic thoroughly analyzes the spinal segments. Spinal segments encase the nervous system which is the body’s electric wiring, and muscles attach to spinal segments. If a structural chiropractor finds evidence of a structural shift, it’s important to specifically correct them for optimal health and function.
Structural chiropractic is different than conventional chiropractic care. Conventional offices focus on temporary pain relief. Structural chiropractic focuses on creating a long-term solution to a patients condition.
Physical therapy analyzes the muscular system to improve function of muscles. PT will utilize superficial modalities, generalized manipulation, needling, and exercises to work on muscles.
Conventional Chiropractic and Physical Therapy
Conventional chiropractic and physical therapists do a great job of improving muscle range of motion. Both focus on temporary pain relief. It’s difficult to distinguish between the two.
Optimizing spinal segments through Structural Chiropractic fully addresses many conditions that may seem muscular on the surface. A structural Chiropractor will perform an in-depth analysis of the spine. A thorough analysis is vital to create a solution to any condition. A doctor doesn’t perform chemotherapy without blood work or imaging of cancer.
After a thorough analysis, patients will experience specific, gentle corrections to spinal segments that have shifted. In addition to corrections, recommendations like structural exercises and ergonomic changes will be explained.
