Chiropractic

Good stretches – how to safely twist the spine.

What is the difference between an osteopath, a chiropractor a physiotherapist and a holistic therapist? They all claim to have a unique philosophy. My impression is that chiropractic focusses on the alignment of the spine and the health of the spinal nerves. “If the spine is in line you feel fine.” Their emphasis is wellness not disease.

Here is a great example of chiropractic treatment that is close to what I do myself. Dr David Russ, NE Oregon

 

A physiotherapist Adam Meakins wrote, “We do know that staying active helps,” he says. “The lines between physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy have become blurred. As physiotherapists we should be giving only education and exercise-based advice. We believe in self-management, giving patients ownership to get themselves better and not looking for repeat business.”
