Who is fastest in pain relief? Physiotherapist, Osteopath, Chiropractor or Chinese Medicine?

Should i see Osteopath, Chiropractor or Physiotherapist? Which can help me faster to cure my pain?

 
PRLog - Feb. 4, 2011 - TANJONG PAGAR, Singapore -- When faced with pain problems: neck pain, back pain, knee pain, headaches, heel pain, arthritis and stiffness, many of us want to avoid taking medication for long periods. They're expensive, they have side effects, and they often have long term health risks. Here's a viable alternative to standard medical treatments.
Should i see Osteopath, Chiropractor or Physiotherapist? Which can help me faster to cure my pain? This is a very common question asked by a lot of people. Depending on who you ask you will probably get different answers. If you asked me, I would advise you to see a physiotherapist because I am a physiotherapist! Let me answer it non-biased way and discuss at it objectively. It is far easier to compare the similarities between osteopath, chiropractor, physiotherapist whom we are all health care professionals to help people get better of their pain. What’s their difference by definition?
The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy defines physiotherapy as:
‘Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential. Physiotherapists work in a wide variety of health settings such as intensive care, mental illness, stroke recovery, occupational health, and care of the elderly. Physiotherapy is certainly far more than fixing musculoskeletal injuries, pain and sports injuries although that is perhaps the most common perception of the profession. A physiotherapist use accepted scientific procedures to treat diseases of joints , the back , limbs and muscle by methods like joint mobilisation/manipulative, pain relief treatments (eg ultrasound, TENS, electrotherapy), massage, and rehabilitation exercises.
Physiotherapist have also entered into health and wellness, preventive programs into teaching, and providing consulting services to industry and recreation sports team.

The British Chiropractic Association defines chiropractic as:
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine.
Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm.
Chiropractors use short, high velocity thrusts in their manipulations more commonly to adjust the spine accordingly for what seem to be non-spinal conditions to spinal mal-alignment which their term as 'subluxation
The General Osteopathic Council defines osteopathy as:
Osteopathy recognises that much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in our body's structure and function. Osteopaths diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to help the body's natural healing ability. Treatment involves gentle manipulation which can result in an audlble 'crack' which is simply the sound of gas bubbles popping in the fluid of the joints. Osteopathy does not involve the use of drugs or surgery.
What ever therapist you see do not hesitate to try different ones and see you feel the most appropriate.
