Chiropractor or Physiotherapist? This is one of the most commonly asked question by our patients. Well, this is quite a controversial topic I must say. I do believe all health professionals have their own place in the treatment of a patient. However , there seems to be a lot more awareness about Chiropractors! They are great at marketing! On the other hand, Physios do not do enough marketing of their profession! People still seem to associate Physio with sport injuries or hospital treatment. Almost everyone seems to think Chiropractors are the answer to everything from headaches to ankle pain. Hence, it makes it quite frustrating for Physios to answer this question. Here is my two cents worth.
What does a Physiotherapist treat?
Physiotherapy involves a complete assessment of your injury or pain. Physios are capable of diagnosing a problem, without scans and X rays, I must mention. They can tell you exactly where the pain is coming from.
