Chiropractor Glasgow V's Manipulative Physiotherapy

Chiropractic (practiced by a chiropractor) is a health care discipline and profession that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. It is generally considered to be complementary and alternative medicine, a characterization that many chiropractors reject. Treatment involves manual therapy including manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissue, as well as health and lifestyle counseling.

Traditional Chiropractic Treatment

Traditional Chiropractic treatment assumes that a vertebral subluxation or spinal joint dysfunction interferes with the body’s function and its innate intelligence, a notion that brings ridicule from mainstream science. The efficacy and cost effectiveness of maintenance chiropractic care are unknown. Although spinal manipulation can have serious complication in rare cases, chiropractic care is generally safe when employed skillfully and appropriately.

Physiotherapy:

A science based practice that treats injury and disease by external physical methods of reducing pain and restoring normal body movement and function. Treatment includes therapeutic exercise and treatment modalities.

Manipulative Physiotherapy:

Manipulative physiotherapy involves more precise clinical examination to return problem areas to full function or to stop deterioration. Treatment can include correction of misalignments, joint and soft tissue manipulation.
