Physical therapy is one way of treating pain without the use of surgery or prescription drugs. Using physical therapy, a therapist can relax tension in your muscles and nerves. Chiropractic treatment has the same effect, but a chiropractor manipulates your spine and back muscles to alleviate tension. A physical therapist uses massage therapy to restore mobility and remedy pain in the body. These therapists will also give patients exercise plans to do on their own, i.e. at home or a gym.
The most common way a chiropractic session helps with physical therapy is by complementing it. Through a spinal adjustment, your chiropractor can relieve tension within the nerves in your neck, lower back, and sciatic nerve area. Chiropractic services also include massage therapy, which covers the main difference between physical therapy and chiropractic. By massaging muscles and tendons, a chiropractor can alleviate pain in the same way that a physical therapist can.
Anytime you have issues deep within the muscles or nerves, such as sciatica, you can benefit most from chiropractic care. This is because of the way chiropractic works. It gets to the bottom of the nerves deep within the muscles and spine. Anything associated with this area, such as headaches, lower back pain, lumbar pain, or sciatica, can be relieved using chiropractic as part of a physical therapy program. If you are also going to a physical therapist via your general practitioner or surgeon, please let Dr. Clayman know when you schedule an appointment for physical therapy services. Our goal here at the Roxbury Spine and Wellness Center in West Seattle is to work in conjunction with your healthcare team. This provides you with the best overall treatment.
