Are you an athlete? Or are you just a weekend warrior? Whether it be a sprain-strain or a herniated disc in the neck or the back, chiropractic care can help. You want a certified chiropractic sports physician that spends the majority of their day treating sports-related injuries.
I once had a friend who told me that he didn’t believe in chiropractic adjustments or subluxation.
I asked why?
He claims there was no research for it from the medical community.
Now, as someone who has been seeing chiropractors since I was 12, this came as a shock!
Although both Chiropractors and Physical Therapists are both specialists in diagnosing and treating their patients, they do have some differences in their areas of practice. In large part, the difference is threefold: philosophy of practice, work environment, and third-party reimbursement, commonly known as health insurance. While the history that spawned each profession is quite diverse, the two professions have been on converging paths ever since their individual genesis. I will attempt to bring clarity to the before-stated question. With it, there is sure to be controversy from each side.
