Rehabilitation - physical therapy or chiropractic information and locations in Mexico

Patient doing rehabilitation
Rehabilitation clinics or physical therapy clinics perform non-surgical and non-invasive techniques to help patients improve their range of motion, along with managing their pain. It is customary that a certified physical therapist and chiropractor work together to design the treatment plan according to each person’s needs and goals.
Part of their job is to help improve the quality of life, restore function, and regain autonomy of patients that have a neurological condition or just had an injury, surgery, or amputation.
Although physical therapy and chiropractic manage muscle pain with noninvasive techniques, their approach is different.
Physical therapy
A physical therapist is a licensed medical specialist that has knowledge in anatomy and kinesiology, this allows them to focus on improving the movement and strength of the body through exercises, stretching, and joint manipulation.
A chiropractic is also a licensed physician, they concentrate on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, meaning that they work on alleviating pain by adjusting or manipulating the joints that affect the overall body alignment.
