Muscles and Bones: A therapist will work with you to strengthen muscles to bring the body into better alignment and health. It is very much about curing your problems. A chiropractor will manipulate the bones to temporarily bring some relief or attempt to bring relief. But there is very little they can offer in the way of solving your problem.
