At Advanced Spine and Posture of North Las Vegas, NV, we believe in approaching wellness from many different angles and perspectives.
As a result, we enlist the help of a variety of wellness experts, including that of physical therapists.
Physical therapy and chiropractic care are different. While they are complementary forms of treatment which often overlap in their beneficial effects, they serve two very specific purposes—chiropractic care helps improve the function of automatic processes in the body, while physical therapy helps to improve the function of voluntary processes in the body.
For example, posture can be thought of as a somewhat “automatic” process. Once the body is standing, it is doing so with the help of many micro-processes and overlapping systems, but it is not often a conscious thought to internally align your joints when you stand (nor is it usually possible!).
In contrast, physical therapy usually aids in regaining mobility, movement, and function to voluntary processes that include active movement, like sitting, kneeling, bending, walking, balancing, and folding or unfolding various limbs and extremities. While chiropractic care can help to support these same processes, it is not as direct in its application and treatment as physical therapy is for these purposes.
While the severity of these accidents may vary, there is ultimately always an effect on the human body during or following a car accident, even in a simple fender-bender. Fortunately, whether the effects of a car collision appear immediately, or some time after the accident, chiropractic care can help.
