What is the Difference Between Physiotherapy and Chiropractic

There are several  differences between the two:

  • Level of medical/ scientific training (Physiotherapy is the closest allied health profession to Medicine)
  • Beliefs about optimal health (Physiotherapists follow current scientific medical models)
  • Treatment methods (Physiotherapists use only safe evidence based treatments)
  • Use of Evidence Based Practice (The latest trend in the medical community is using research results to base clinical decisions upon)
  • Chiropractors tend to use high force manipulative techniques more than Physiotherapists
