What's the difference between PT/chiropractor/personal trainer?
Education, philosophy, and clinical expertise are the main differences between the Physical Therapists, Chiropractor, and a Personal trainer. Physical Therapists earn a clinical doctorate (Doctor of Physical Therapy) similar to a chiropractor’s clinical doctorate (Doctor of Chiropractic), while a Personal Trainer is not a degree, rather a certification. PT’s focus on rehabilitation in the forms of manual therapy, corrective exercise, body mechanics and patient education with the goal of empowering the patient for long-term success. Chiropractors focus on joints and the nervous systems with manipulations and adjustments. A personal trainer provides exercise programs to help individuals meet specific health or performance related goals.
