What is the difference between physiotherapy and chiropractic care

The education of the chiropractor

The Netherlands does not have a high standard of training for chiropractors. Therefore, you often see chiropractors who have received their training abroad. This is also the case with us.

At TOPCHIRO we have specialists with backgrounds in America, South Africa, Italy etc. The reason for this is twofold. The education in these countries is very good. And secondly, because of this we have knowledge and skills from different training courses together. The big advantage of this is that we can further improve the best possible care.

This is an important difference with physiotherapy, most physiotherapists are trained at the same colleges in the Netherlands and have relatively little contact with other movements within physiotherapy.

Chiropractic, on the other hand, continues to develop due to its international nature.

With which Complaints can you go to a Physical Therapist or Chiropractor?

The physiotherapist mainly focuses on muscle complaints and the treatment of those muscles. This is the reason why many sports injuries are treated by physios.

Less known is that the chiropractor also has all the knowledge and skills to treat muscles. However, what the chiropractor has as an advantage is the additional knowledge of the body. This gives a chiropractor more possibilities. A chiropractor can search to find out if the pain is not caused by something deeper.

Think of a misalignment of a vertebra that causes a wrong posture. That incorrect posture can cause pain.

De beste oplossing is dan niet om de houding aan te passen. Nee, door het verhelpen van de klachten aan de ruggenwervel, kan het lichaam zelf weer de juiste houding aannemen.

In this way the chiropractor guides the body to optimal health.

What is the best choice for Sports Injuries

This question is very personal.

Als chiropractor kunnen wij deze vraag alleen voor onze eigen zorg beantwoorden. Wij zien heel veel goede resultaten bij sporters. De reden hiervoor is dat wij niet alleen bezig zijn met blessures.

The goal of our practice is to achieve optimal health by preventing injuries. This means that we will sometimes be busy with finding out the deeper cause of sports injuries or pains, but also that we are always focused on keeping the body in optimal condition.
