Do physical therapists get along with chiropractors?

There are myths out there about physical therapists and physical therapy.  One of them is “physical therapists do not get along with chiropractors.”

Here is a link that highlights the myth:  http://physicaltherapy.about.com/od/typesofphysicaltherapy/a/Physical-Therapy-Mythbusters.htm

The truth is…in my experience chiropractors and physical therapists get along great and even refer to one another for the best interests of  the patient.   Physical therapists are really great at specific exercises that are customized to fix your precise problem,  and chiropractors can manipulate your specific joint to get the pain down quickly.

Together, you feel better quickly and have long term results if you continue your specific exercise program.

Patients get the best of both worlds when there is teamwork between the professions.  Add into the mix a great massage therapist and you’ve got a powerful mix that get people better.
