Physical Therapy Q & A

Atlas Chiropractic

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a term that is applied to a set of specialized exercises, muscular movements, adjustments and activities designed to increase functionality and flexibility. Physical therapy restores movement and mobility, improves strength, and helps patients recover from injury so that they can regain control of their life after a debilitating accident or illness.

How do Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Work Together?

Many people think that physical therapy and chiropractic are somehow at odds, but the truth is, chiropractors work together with physical therapists, and there’s a great deal of overlap between the two professions. More often every day, people are beginning to see physical therapy and chiropractic are two important and complementary aspects of a comprehensive whole body approach to recovering from illness and injury.

How does Physical Therapy Treat Arm, Back, Leg, Neck and Shoulder Pain?

People who suffer from pain in their back, neck, shoulders, arms and legs often think of heading to the chiropractor for an adjustment to alleviate the pain. However, they just as often visit a physical therapist for similar reasons. It is important to have a dedicated whole-health team to guide patients on their path to recovery and wellness.

The truth is, while a chiropractor can make the necessary adjustments and apply treatments to address the underlying causes of pain in the back, extremities and throughout the body, the efforts of a good physical therapist can pick up the race at that point and help patients to regain functionality, strength, and mobility in those affected areas.

For those who are suffering from pain resulting from a spinal or nervous injury in East Haven, CT, Dr. Church can develop a comprehensive individualized treatment plan for chiropractic and physical therapy to restore a patient’s health and help them get better than ever.
