Going to the doctor isn’t always just about going to the hospital, getting injections or operations, there are other healthcare services available in hospitals with various specializations such as physical therapy and chiropractic treatments. If you’re wondering what types of physical therapy and chiropractic services are available in Saigon or where to find a good therapist, read on.

Osteopathy

A manipulative therapy that treats disorders in a patient’s anatomy. Four to six years of intense study is required to become an osteopath. A wider range of techniques are used in osteopathic treatment than in chiropractic, namely: craniosacral therapy for babies, migraine sufferers and whiplash victims; visceral therapy for stomach and back pain; and fascia therapy for asthma and emotional problems

Chiropractic therapy

Chiropractic therapy is a form of alternative or complementary medicine that focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical problems with the human musculoskeletal system (especially the spine). The theory is that these problems affect general health through the nervous system. Chiropractic therapy is more of a care speciality, though chiropractors share some attributes with primary health care providers.
