Whether you’re a licensed physical therapist or a student in PT, your background makes you quite an attractive candidate to practice chiropractic care. Surprised you didn't know that.
Chiropractic Care and PT Both Have Similar Goals
If you’ve been studying or practicing physical therapy, then you’re already helping others improve their overall wellness. Both physical therapy and chiropractic care avoid risky surgeries and take holistic approaches toward getting patients active again. That’s the end goal of both practices.
You might have taken courses that actually meet many chiropractic school prerequisites, which makes it an easy and feasible transition.
Both Focus on the Body, Muscles, and Joints
Both PT people and chiropractors have a deep understanding of the human body. A chiropractor specializes in the back, neck, and spine, in addition to providing a wide range of services, like diet consultation and preventive medicine.
Physical therapy deals with musculoskeletal injuries, which might involve:
PT addresses and helps treat fractures, sprains, conditions like tendonitis, bursitis, as well as chronic medical conditions. Both PT and chiropractic caregivers have the end goal of rehabilitation or recovery from either surgery or injury.
