How to become a specialist in manual therapy?
Manual therapy as a direction of medicine can be attributed to the oldest medical practices. In ancient times, the appeal to bone-smelting was the next step after self-massage and stroking. However, the effectiveness of treatment with hands was gradually forgotten, especially with the intensive development of modern pharmacology and surgery as a result in Europe only in the XX century, against the backdrop of the revival of ancient practices, the interest in manual therapy began to become more active as a real and qualitative aid to patients.
Basis of treatment by hands - profound knowledge
To come to the aid of the patient and at the same time not to harm him, the manual therapist is obliged to deeply study not only the traditional methods of medical influence, but also the very physical nature of the processes taking place in the patient's body.
The extremely subtle interaction of externally unrelated changes in the condition of muscles, ligaments, joints, spine and internal organs allows the specialist to create serious prerequisites for the fact that the body itself begins to counteract the disease and cure 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 specialists in manual therapists, both in the United States and in Europe, took place 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 XX century, a reasonable 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 also born in Russia, one of which is represented by the Kislovodsk Medical College. Specialists and teachers of this educational institution have developed their own unique highly effective methods of treating not only the joints, but also internal organs with the methods of manual therapy.
Manual therapy, at present, is practically the only really effective method of treating such a common disease as osteochondrosis.
