How chiropractic differs from physiotherapy

The main differences between chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments. 

The main difference between the two disciplines is that a chiropractor traditionally uses manipulation, where a physiotherapist will more commonly use mobilisation techniques.

Physiotherapy typically focuses on assisting individual’s restore movement and function following injury or physical disability.

Chiropractors at ChiroCure Clinic assess the body as a whole to determine areas that are not functioning properly. These areas can either be spinal (related to the neck, mid and lower back) or extremity (related to the shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knees or feet) and be caused by poor joint movement, nervous system interference or muscular dysfunction.
