Our take on Physical Therapy
What “traditional” physical therapy looks like
In America, a traditional physical therapist will treat a patient condition by only looking at the condition itself, such as knee pain. A series of exercises pertaining to the localized area will be prescribed, with time allocated up to 60 minutes per day. In addition, prescribed exercises are assigned mostly via a diagnoses from a referring physician.

Using Joint Mobilization in Physical Therapy
While many people have short term pain relief from chiropractic care, their symptoms frequently return after their treatments. This is due to the inability of chiropractors to get to the root of the pain by performing joint manipulation. It takes a whole body assessment and view of what is causing pain to get to the root of the issue. Read more about this approach on our pain page.
The primary treatment difference is chiropractic uses a fast thrust while joint mobilization is a slow release of soft tissue around joints. It is the intent of the physical therapist to engage in passive and active treatments to empower the patient through the performance of corrective exercise programs at home, performed daily.
