Understanding the Key Differences
between sports chiropractic care, regular chiropractic care, and physical therapy
What is the difference between a sports chiropractor, regular chiropractor, and physical therapist?
If you are an aspiring athlete or weekend warrior, you might be wondering what the difference is between a sports chiropractor, a regular chiropractor and physical therapist. On the surface, the differences may not be obvious. However, learning a little more about each practice can help you confidently make a decision about which one to choose in your moment of need.
A sports chiropractor (CCSP, DACBSP, ICSC)
A sports chiropractor is a highly-specialized chiropractic provider who has undergone years of postgraduate training beyond their chiropractic degree. This additional education typically includes subjects specific to exercise, injury prevention, emergency procedures, rehabilitation of injuries, and sports-specific evaluation and diagnosis. Initials that follow a properly trained practitioner’s name are: CCSP, DACBSP, and ICSC. These indicate advanced training and can help you find a true sports chiropractic specialist. Sports Chiropractors use manipulations, a wide array of advanced manual therapies, the latest sports taping approaches, and active therapeutic exercises to help athletes achieve. These experts can assess functional movement with a comprehensive understanding of the body’s biomechanics and systems.
A regular chiropractor (DC)
A traditional chiropractor is a healthcare professional who focuses on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders, mostly of the neck and back. A traditional chiropractor’s overall goal is to reduce pain and restore function to the nervous system by manually adjusting or manipulating the spine. Regular chiropractors are an excellent choice for spinal injuries, postural issues, scoliosis, spinal arthritis, and family wellness care.
A physical therapist (MPT, DPT)
A physical therapist is concerned with treating many types of movement impairment or disorder. As part of their practice, physical therapists will use passive and active stretching, ice, heat, manual therapies, therapeutic activities, and home exercise for patients. The length of schooling for a physical therapist is shorter than for a chiropractor, with physical therapists receiving less training in diagnosis, advanced imaging, and manual treatments/manipulation.
The most significant difference between a physical therapist and a chiropractor is in the approach to treating movement disorders. While chiropractors and physical therapists are both concerned with the muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments, chiropractors are also concerned with how misalignments of the spine may affect the entire body. Specifically, chiropractors work to correct subluxations, which may impede proper nerve signals and lead to a whole host of other medical issues.
