Physical Therapy is often used in conjunction with chiropractic care in aiding recovery and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal systems. Physical Therapy is such a popular option to supplement chiropractic because many have found that the two forms of therapy used simultaneously can accelerate recovery.
Physical therapy aims to strengthen joints and the spine through certain exercises and stretches. It also focuses on identifying weak points or poor posture that can contribute to the problems that patients experience. With the combined practices of strengthening weak joints and the spine through physical therapy and alleviating pressure along the spine with chiropractic, patients often come out of their treatment plans feeling strong and having a plan to keep pain and injury away in the future.
