A little bit of a rant….. Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors train a long time to learn what they do. Part of the Osteopathic and Chiropractic training involves spinal manipulation and many physiotherapists go on and do post graduate training to learn and fine-tune these in-depth techniques. We all do a thorough training in anatomy, physiology, pathology and pathophysiology over our YEARS of training.
I have been seeing that more and more ‘massage therapists’ have been learning to do spinal manipulation after doing only 25 days training to be a massage therapist and 5 or so days learning how to manipulate someones spine.
In my opinion this is wrong and unsafe. Case history questions will not be sufficient and neither will their examination of the patient!
Many patients seek treatment for back or neck pain of some sort.
In seeking a practitioner who may manipulate you, please make sure you see someone from one of these disciplines who has had full and sufficient training so that you are in the safest possible environment for that sort of treatment.
If you have any questions, please call the clinic on 020 8605 2323
