Difference between physical therapy and chiropractic care.

The keystone of chiropractic care is optimization of joint movement (spinal or extremity) so that information that neuroreceptors like golgi tendon organs can be interpreted by the central nervous system accurately and that information send to the muscles leads to efficient movement, whether that movement is global like walking or micro like stabilization. Rarely do I look at a problem as a strength issue and not all muscle problems can be boiled down to a lack of stretching. Adhesions in the joint capsule, poor biomechanics and functional movement matters can manifest as muscle stiffness. Pinched nerves are rarely pinched nerves but usually a joint unable to move well in relation to the joints above and below it.  Musculoskeletal pain that does not respond well to over the counter medication usually responds to chiropractic care. Also radiating pain that is not dermatomal in nature responds well to chiropractic care.  Physical therapist are very good at helping a person learn how to walk again, working with patients who have come out casts and who have legitimate strength issues. Also care that might require 20+ visits or treatments over a 2 month period could be better handled by a physical therapist. My care plans average between 3-8 visits and if they are more than 10 visits it’s because of a disc injury, multiple areas of injury (falling down the steps) or chronic conditions in individuals who are slow to heal.
