Chiropractic and Physiotherapy: What is the Difference?

Both Chiropractic care and Physiotherapy are non-invasive treatments that have proven to be effective in relieving pain and improving mobility. But their approaches can be slightly different. It is important to understand the difference between the two modalities so you can make the most informed decision for your specific condition and needs to get proper relief for your pain and aches.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is focused on diagnosing and treating misalignments in the spine and other joints, also known as subluxations. Chiropractors use manual adjustments to realign the spine, reduce muscular tension and restore proper function to the nervous system, which can improve overall health and well-being. Chiropractors also emphasise the importance of preventative care and lifestyle modifications to prevent future injuries and maintain optimal health.

Why should you see a Chiropractor?

Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment option if you have:

What is Physiotherapy?


Physiotherapy, on the other hand, is focused on treating physical impairments and disabilities through exercises, manual therapy, and other modalities. Physiotherapists aim to restore loss of muscle strength or control, joint mobility to stiff or painful joints and independence to individuals with injuries or chronic conditions. They also provide education and guidance on injury prevention and management.

Why should you see Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapy can be an effective treatment option if you:

  • feel pain related to movement
  • have limited movement due to:
    • an accident
    • injury 
    • surgery
    • a health condition
  • want to maintain or increase your ability to move with ease
  • need to build strength and combat the effects of a health condition, such as:
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Rheumatoid arthritis
    • Multiple sclerosis
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • stroke
    • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)


At Live Well Chiropractic, our Chiropractors not only provide precised spinal adjustments and personalised treatment programs, but also have extensive experience in rehabilitation exercises. This allows us to provide a holistic approach to care and help patients achieve optimal results in both pain relief and long-term health and wellness.

While both Chiropractic treatments and Physiotherapy can be effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions, they approach treatment from different perspectives. It is important to note that each individual and their condition is unique, and the best treatment option may vary depending on their specific needs and preferences. When it comes to making the right decision between Chiropractic care and Physiotherapy, consulting a professional is always the best way forward, be it a Chiropractor, Physiotherapist or Medical Doctor who can help assess the best course of action for you.
