Physio or Chiro? What’s the difference?

Physio or Chiro? What’s the difference?

Physio or chiro? Other than patients asking questions about their particular injury, this has to be the next most popular question. And it’s a tough one to answer. Certainly all three professions have come a long way since they were originally created many years ago. This article by ABC Health and Wellbeing summarises all three professions very well.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists specialise in the diagnosis, management and prevention of movement disorders.

The aim of physiotherapy is to rehabilitate and improve a person’s ability to move and function, and physios use their expertise in anatomy and physiology to assess and treat people with a range of health conditions.

While physios are mostly known for their treatment of sporting injuries and neck and back pain, they also work with premature babies, people recovering from stroke, those with brain or spinal cord damage, and people with conditions like Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, osteoporosis and cystic fibrosis.
