What is Physical Therapy?
While surgery and prescription drugs can be the best course of treatment for certain diagnoses, there is increasing evidence demonstrating that conservatively treating injuries with chiropractic and physiotherapy can be equally or more effective (and cheaper) for many conditions. Low back pain is routinely overmedicated despite abundant evidence that chiropractic and physiotherapy is a cost-effective treatment that often avoids advanced imaging scans like MRIs that increase the cost of care and the likelihood of surgery and injections. Chiropractic care and physiotherapy has proven as effective as surgery for meniscal tears and knee osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disk disease, among other conditions.
