Guide to Physiotherapy in Chiropractic Care

When facing an issue within the musculoskeletal system, it often requires several different types of treatment techniques to ensure optimal healing.

Learn more about how physiotherapy can benefit you and enhance your chiropractic treatment plan below.

What Exactly Is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a type of care that focuses on restoring function and proper movement to the body through mobilization techniques. It begins by assessing the patient’s body as a whole, focusing on issues in movement. Various techniques such as exercises, massage, and electric muscle stimulation are then utilized to relieve pain and discomfort and address any dysfunction that interferes with the patient’s ability to perform their daily tasks comfortably.

Why Combine Physiotherapy With Chiropractic Care?

Combining these forms of care is incredibly beneficial as it provides comprehensive treatment. Chiropractic care focuses more heavily on the skeletal system, although treatment is intended to relieve issues in the muscular system, as well. Physiotherapy focuses more heavily on the muscular system, though it still plays an integral role in skeletal health and wellness.

Imagine for a moment that you have suffered a back injury and are now dealing with the debilitating symptoms of sciatica. Chiropractic care will focus on relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve through techniques such as adjustments and spinal decompression.

Such techniques are effective in addressing the root cause of your symptoms. However, while you are injured, your back muscles work harder to maintain spinal alignment, and your body is working hard to heal the damaged area.

Though adjustments and decompression relieve the pressure on the nerves, the effects of this hard work are still present. Unfortunately, they can strain the back enough to pull the spine back out of alignment, in addition to making regular movements a challenge.

By combining physiotherapy with chiropractic techniques, the troubled areas of the soft tissues are also being addressed. This reduces the likelihood of another injury and enhances your recovery. The result is more comprehensive treatment and lasting relief.
