What is Physical Therapy and Do I Also Need Chiropractic Care?

South Bay Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care

Combining Chiropractic Care and Physical Therapy in South Bay

Many patients come to Marina Sports Medicine to either see a physical therapist or chiropractor rather than to receive treatment from both practitioners.

Even though they should.

Particular conditions heal more efficiently if they have the benefit of experiencing both chiropractic care and physical therapy in South Bay. We will dive into why that is, but first, let us remind you how our physical therapists treat our patients!

Defining Physical Therapy

South Bay physical therapists will tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs with one overarching goal in mind: returning you back to your optimal self.

Treatment Methods

Every situation is different, but when you experience physical therapy, you will receive at least one of these treatments:

  • Stretches
  • Exercises
  • Heat therapy
  • Cold/ice therapy
  • Ultrasound
  • Rehabilitation techniques

Each one hones in on something different, such as the ultrasound focusing on alleviating you from the pain muscle spasms cause. Based on your particular condition, your physical therapist in South Bay will put you through any number of these to get you right!

How Do They Know Which Treatments Will Work?

Your physical therapist can determine which treatments will yield the best results for you after evaluating the following:

  • Vitals
  • Balance
  • Level of pain
  • Medical history
  • Range of motion
  • And more!

Combining these findings help form a customized treatment plan for you.

Reasons to Seek Physical Therapy

Some of the reasons patients turn to physical therapists in South Bay are:

With all these different treatment methods, physical therapists are able to cure countless ailments!

Why Combine Both Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care?

To maximize the benefits of physical therapy!

We recommend receiving chiropractic care simultaneously because the treatments are complementary.

Chiropractors augment the work of physical therapists by improving your spinal health. The spine contains nerve endings and pressure points that connect to other organs and areas of the body. By utilizing their non-invasive methods on your spine, chiropractors enable your body to positively respond to physical therapy.

In addition to strengthening physical therapy’s effectiveness, chiropractic care also addresses some of the same issues:

  • Joint health
  • Range of motion
  • Lingering sports injuries

This is why your body will thank you for engaging in both treatments in concert!
