Many studies have shown the importance of exercise in managing joint and back pain, strengthening the affected area, allowing for continued work and improvement in the quality of life. With the warm climate here in Hollywood, FL and Ft. Lauderdale areas, year-round mobility becomes a must!
So how does chiropractic and physical therapy work together?
By achieving proper alignment of your spine and joints, the physical therapy can be more effective. If you have suffered a sports injury, car injury and workplace injury, chiropractic care works to keep you aligned and allow for the body to heal. Physical therapy works to provide movement and strengthening to the affected areas.
Benefits of physical therapy and chiropractic care:
- Just as an example, doing exercises to strengthen the lower abdominal muscles has been shown to be the difference between those with chronic lower back and and those without chronic lower back pain.
- In addition to physical movement, physical therapy and chiropractic care can help promote better digestion, help keep your muscles more toned and help with blood circulation.
- As stated by the Scientific Commission of the Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters, utilizing physical therapy to support chiropractic care is shown to be as effective as other non-surgical treatments of chronic joint and back pain
