Now more then ever, everyone seems to be a health expert offering all sorts of varying advise, from your beauty blogger, personal trainer, massage therapist, physical therapist, office colleague, yoga and pilates instructor.
Its a minefield of misinformation and often confusing. Unfortunately this often leads to improper management of conditions which longer term can be detrimental.
Chiropractors are the leaders of Spinal health care, whos specific medical training gives an unrivaled level of education. With a minimum of 4/5years full time higher level masters educations. Ensuring world class standards in treatment.
This is the reason there isn’t many chiropractors, especially in Ireland, as the barrier to entry is of such a high standard and there being no training courses available in Ireland.
Comparatively training and education standards of your massage, physical therapists, yoga or pilates instructors is at a minimum a 12week part time course at a cost of under 2000euro. Which is why there’s been such an influx in these sectors over the years.
Its important to understand this difference as well as the limitations of this as it could be crucial to your short term comfort and long term spinal health.
Yoga = Stretch Exercise,
Pilates = Strengthen Exercise,
Massage/Physical Therapy = Muscular
None of these modalities will specifically fix your underlying spinal/back issue. Whilst they are recommended strategies to help exercise and maintain good spinal health. Opposed to the idea that they are in anyway changing a back problem.
