Different conditions respond to different therapies, and often they respond to two or more therapies given concurrently. In general, physical therapy addresses the muscular and ligamentous component of musculoskeletal problems. Chiropractic addresses the spine, and all the associated structures, including the spinal nerves and intervertebral discs. Massage therapy is helpful for decreasing muscle spasm and tension, and for reducing adhesions and scar tissue in injuries. Together, these therapies have a powerful, synergistic effect that often far exceeds their effects when done individually.
