Choosing A Legimitate And Competent Chiropractor in Kuala Lumpur
A Chiropractor is a healthcare professional who specializes in taking care of the human spine and its nervous system. A Chiropractor does this by adjusting bones along the spinal column that are misaligned and not functioning properly. It is important to choose a legitimate and competent Chiropractor, as adjusting the spine wrongly can potentially be damaging the spine.
How do I identify if my Chiropractor is legitimate?
- Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who have either a degree in Chiropractic or doctorate in Chiropractic. The Chiropractor must have attended a college/university that is accredited by the CCEA (Council of Chiropractic Education Australasia).
- Currently in South East Asia, the only Chiropractic course that is available is in International Medical University, Bukit Jalil. It is a 4-year degree program.
- All Chiropractors are registered with the Association of Chiropractic Malaysia (ACM) and Traditional and Complementary Medicine (T&CM) Malaysia.
- Please ensure that the Chiropractor that you intend to attend is at least a certified ACM and T&CM member and also holds a Chiropractic degree/doctorate.
The term “Chiropractors” should not be confused with other professions who perform random joint manipulation under the guise as “Chiropractors”. Please do clarify with your choice of practitioner before commencing treatment. It is most often confused with Traditional Bonesetters who do manipulation of the spine as well. However, it should be clarified that it is not the same profession or technique.
How do I tell if my Chiropractor is competent?
A competent Chiropractor will always strive to deliver results along with the best quality of care. A competent Chiropractor should be both specific and precise in his/her examination, analysis and treatment. This is because, the human spine is a complexed structure, complicated by the intricacy of the nervous system and ligaments surrounding the spine. Hence, it is paramount that your Chiropractor of choice should be specific and precise in locating the vertebrae that is out of place.
A Chiropractor should also be able to analyze and interpret X-rays of your spine. This is because, the X-ray acts like a blueprint to the spinal structure. Just imagine the spine like a tall condominium building. Hence, any biomechanical deficiencies or abnormalities should be identifiable by the Chiropractor by viewing your X-ray films.
Last but not least, your Chiropractor of choice should be able to give you a detailed explanation on the nature of your issue. He/She should be able to explain why and how it happened, and what is the exact state of it and how you can prevent it from happening again in the future. A thorough explanation on your condition is very critical for you to understand how you can further speed up the recovery process.
