How to become a specialist in manual therapy
How to become a manual therapy specialist?
Manual therapy as a direction of medicine can be attributed to the oldest medical practices. In ancient times, turning to a chiropractor was the next step after self-massage and stroking. However, the effectiveness of hand treatment was gradually forgotten, especially with the intensive development of modern pharmacology and surgery as a result in Europe only in the 20th century, amid the revival of ancient practices, interest in manual therapy as a real and high-quality patient care began to intensify.
Hand treatment - deep knowledge
In order to help the patient and at the same time not to harm him, the manual therapist is obliged to study in depth not only the traditional methods of medical exposure, but also the very physical nature of the processes occurring in the patient's body.
The extremely subtle interaction of seemingly unrelated changes in the condition of muscles, ligaments, joints, spine and internal organs allows the specialist to create serious prerequisites for the body to begin to counteract the disease and heal itself, without the help of traditional medicines.
Where to learn manual therapy?
A serious approach to the study of the problem and the training of manual therapists in both the USA and Europe came at the beginning of the 20th century with the creation of special educational institutions where future specialists acquired the necessary knowledge.
From the middle of the 20th century, rational interaction of traditional medicine and manual practices begins. They began to complement each other and actively cooperate.
By the end of the 20th century, several serious schools of manual therapy were born in Russia, one of which is represented by the Kislovodsk Medical College. Specialists and teachers of this school have developed their own unique highly effective methods of treating not only the joints, but also the internal organs using methods of manual therapy.
Manual therapy, at present, is practically the only really effective method of treatment of such a common disease, as osteochondrosis.
