This is a difficult question to answer completely accurately because all of us work slightly differently. In general though a chiropractor will only concern themselves with your spine. They will not look at peripheral joints such as wrists, shoulders, knees etc. They also seldom do much in the way of muscle work since their main focus is the manipulation of spinal joints. A physiotherapist will most often be well trained for acute injuries such as acutely twisted ankles, torn muscles etc., and rehabilitation from a variety of conditions such as after a knee or hip replacement or a stroke. Keep in mind that both chiropractors and physiotherapists can undertake additional training and this will obviously expand the focus of their practice. As osteopaths, rather than considering particular segments of the body, we make it our business to consider the entire body and how all the moving parts fit together in a unique fashion in each patient's individual case.If you are interested to read more about osteopathic philosophy - visit the "About Osteopathy" section in the menu at the top of the page.
