You have asked for input/advice, then when you did not like what was said, have proceeded to tell us how it really is. That approach in itself will not serve you well on the interview trail.
Some physiatrists will have no beef with chiros, but some will. Part of that may be bias/ignorance but some of that is the fault of chiropractors who practice outside the realm considered appropriate and these MDs/DOs have experience interacting with that element.
The best thing to highlight is MSK knowledge, imaging, anatomy, etc.; would avoid EMG (landmine there), and demonstrate humbleness, willing to learn/be trained, and an insight to discover what you do not know. There is no more dangerous a resident/physcian than one who does not know what they do not know. Don't be that doc.
