What is a physical doctor?
A physical doctor is any physician that treats a patient’s ailments of the nervous and musculoskeletal system. What does that mean? In a nutshell, joint manipulation, stretching, strengthening, exercise, posture repair, gait analysis, muscle relaxation, ergonomics training, and diet modification.
Normalizing a patient’s body structure has profound effects on pain-reduction and slowing or halting the development of spine and joint degeneration.
The two most widely utilized physical doctors are chiropractors and physical therapists.
Chiropractors specialize in joint manipulation to improve joint motion and reduce nervous system interference especially in relation to the spine.
Physical therapists specialize in stretching or strengthening muscle in order to balance and normalize injured joints and body regions.
Chiropractic and physical therapy used in combination is extremely useful to achieve full rehabilitative repair of an injury.
Massage therapists also play a very large role in muscle loosening and relaxation.
