Physical Medicine VS Physical Therapy

Physical therapy and Massage Therapy both fall under the branch of physical medicine rehabilitation. 

 Many Physical therapists utilize massage in the therapies.  While many Massage Therapists suggest exercises and activity adjustments for lasting relief.

So what's the difference?


Physical therapists (PT) generally have a broader scope and can handle more complex diagnoses though usually this still requires conformation, and in some cases supervision of treatment. A Physical Therapist (DPT) requires a doctorate level degree and a deep understanding of the anatomical structure of the body. A Physical therapist can make recommendations about mobility tools and in some places by 2020 Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPT) may be given the ability to prescribe some medications.


 Massage therapists (MT) specialize in soft tissue healing and rehabilitation. A Licenced Massage Therapist (LMT) can continually broaden their understanding through continuing educational courses to hone the therapists unique interest. The field does not require a complex degree however the certifications of the individual can help further the understanding of the specific field of practice. Massage combines a unique blend of Eastern and Western medical techniques to improve function in a holistic way. Many Massage Therapists are in the medical field in a range of practices and work under the supervision of a doctor to treat confirmed diagnoses.
