Are you wondering whether you could benefit from physiotherapy? Charleston Chiropractic And Therapy provides physical therapy as part of our comprehensive chiropractic care in Charleston, SC. Below, you'll find answers to commonly asked questions regarding physiotherapy.
What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is another term for physical therapy. When combined with the right chiropractic care, it can help you achieve and maintain greater mobility. Whether you're looking for injury prevention or physical rehabilitation, our techniques promote health and fitness for long-lasting results. Become involved in your own recovery process with tailored physio techniques that address your specific goals.
Your physiotherapist will help you work through exercises, manual therapy, and other modalities to facilitate the healing process. They may also ask you to perform exercises on your own to expedite your progress.
What Conditions Require a Physiotherapist?
Physiotherapy addresses problems impacting soft tissues, joints, and bones, allowing for many potential applications. Feel free to ask anyone on our team about the beneficial impact of physical therapy for back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and joint injuries.
Who Needs Physiotherapy the Most?
Your primary care physician may recommend physiotherapy and chiropractic care. If you're recovering from a work or sports injury, you may benefit from physical therapy. Additionally, those with acute or chronic pain often report positive results after four to six sessions of physiotherapy plus chiropractic adjustments.
What Techniques Does a Physiotherapist Use?
Our chiropractor is also a trained physiotherapist. If you schedule physical therapy sessions to facilitate your healing process, our team may use manual exercises, electrotherapy, soft tissue mobilization, ultrasound, and other techniques to maximize your progress. It all starts with an evaluation so that we can better understand your medical history and lifestyle. The more information available, the better we can assess your needs.
Should I Get Physical Therapy or a Massage?
Massages can help you relax and have several benefits in terms of pain relief and mobility improvement. Physiotherapy goes a bit deeper, focusing on rehabilitating your muscles and joints directly. Going to a chiropractor who is also adept at physical therapy gives you a unique advantage. Targeted adjustments improve alignment while physical therapy focuses on regaining mobility in damaged or injured areas.

"Before seeing Dr.Workman I was in pain for about a year. After only a couple of visits I became my old self again. I have been under his care now for over three pain free years. Dr. Workman has given me back my life. Dr. workman is a true healer and has restored my faith in the chiropractic profession."
"Some people claim that chiropractors are quacks--these people have obviously been going to the wrong chiropractors. My back has given me problems as far back as I can remember. In high school I was too busy reveling my angst to do anything about it and in college I claimed to be too busy. Now that I've graduated, I decided to finally try to get some help. 5 weeks later, my back feels better than ever before in memory. If you've got any reservations, destroy them. Go see Dr. Workman. The man is like a wizard, casting level 5 relief spells."
"I'm a recent college grad in Charleston and have been getting care from Charleston Chiropractic & Therapy for the past several months. As a Division I track and field athlete, I really can't say enough about Brian and Alicia (massage therapist). They kept me healthy and competition ready (the views of the Charleston harbor aren't bad either!). I would absolutely recommend them to anyone in Charleston in need of chiropractic care."
