Isn’t Physical Therapy the same as Chiropractic?
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.
