Chirotherapist, Osteopath, Chiromassage Or Physiotherapist?

It also provides relaxation and promotes sleep. Its results are mechanical, therapeutic, aesthetic, sports and psychological. The osteopath, on the other hand, will take care of the joints. Some osteopaths mix massage with joint manipulation in a general way.


Chiropractic Epistemologically

Chiropractic epistemologically derived from the Greek: their and practice’s means doing with the hands. The Chinese long before documented the practice of soft tissue manipulation in the Cong Fou of 2700 years BC and the Greeks did the same 1500 years ago. Its use was always linked to chronic ailments. Its purpose is to restore the biomechanical and spinal balance that influence the musculoskeletal, neurological and vascular systems in such a way that the nerves and blocked channels are decompressed to allow the energy to flow freely and thus “preserve the mobility of the spine, its alignment flexibility and discharge, as well as in other joints.


“It is recommended to people suffering from chronic hip pain, sciatica, lumbar, cervical, head, near the spine, etc.


The obstetrician physiotherapists can detect the alterations or injuries of the people, for example, scoliosis or tendonitis.


This professional is recommended for those who suffer from body aches, limitation of movement, persistent headaches or dizziness.

Since the origin of many ailments is postural and repetitive movements, it is advisable to visit a physiotherapist at least once by way of injury prevention, or rehabilitation. “The scope of physiotherapy is vast. It covers respiratory, neurological, pediatric, and pediatric physiotherapy, and even since it is dedicated to traumatology, some professionals specialize in the care of the back, knee, spine, or temporomandibular joint. “It should begin in childhood to identify spinal deviations and postural problems. Physiotherapy prevents a myriad of issues such as osteoarthritis and lumbago.
Physiotherapy also has a global vision of the body. It often happens that the pain in one part of the body lies in another. There is also a relationship between posture and breathing that the physiotherapist will take into consideration since the diaphragm is the muscle of respiration and therefore will affect position and stability of the spine.
The physiotherapist uses equipment or machines typically for the rehabilitation of muscles or the treatment of injuries such as electrical current devices, lasers, ultrasounds or magnets. These professionals “cure, prevent ailments, promote health, recover, rehabilitate and readaptation” people who suffer somatic dysfunctions or who wish to stay healthy. The physiotherapist will focus on the movement and movement of the body and soft tissues. It will never do spinal manipulation.

A Back Pain Does Not Heal With Rest

According to medical sources, 44% of the population will suffer from back pain in the next six months, of which 20% could be affected by subacute low back pain. Over the years, the concept of back pain has undergone a revolution, and nowadays it is recommended to face it in a different way, where the proactive attitude of the patient is critical to overcoming it. Now, the IDIAP Jordi Gol Primary Care Research Institute dedicated to the promotion of research in the first level of care in Catalonia, has initiated a study to treat low back pain without drugs. For a year and a half, a non-pharmacological therapy will be carried out on 800 patients, between 18 and 65 years old, with some episode of pain between fifteen days and three months. The physiotherapist Elena Montel is one of the members of this project that also has doctors who help to undo myths about low back pain and a psychologist who teaches patients to face the pain and change the attitude towards him.

The experts say that the concept of back pain has experienced a revolution with the passage of time. How should we approach it today?

In the beginning, it was understood by back pain what was the typical wear on the back or osteoarthritis. What happens is that scientific studies have ruled that it is not the same. You can have osteoarthritis, but the nonspecific back pain is a pain that is not associated with a physical anomaly itself, but a set of factors that come together in a particular type of people are more predisposed to chronify this pain, when not There is an injury. With the sessions we are doing for IDIAP Jordi Gol we also work on the most psychological part and demystify some myths like that people cannot work because they have back pain. They work the fears that some people have about this disease, and that creates insecurity.

 Can we cure a common back pain without pharmacological help?

I believe that pharmacological support is necessary at first what happens is that, depending on how you know yourself, maybe the pharmacological help you need is not so much. If you have sharp back pain with much pain, it is necessary to rest for three days, no more, and the help of analgesics. But it is not the only treatment.

And now he will tell me that the problem is that it is hard for us to know our body …

It is essential the psychology and to ask you what has changed so that today you have a pain of back that yesterday did not have. Analyze what the causes may be. What also happens with people who have back pain is that the day they are well they try to do many things and when they are worse they do nothing. It’s about sharing the tasks, and the day you’re wrong not to make an absolute rest because the muscles weaken quickly, and the day that does not hurt you do not have to give yourself a beating. Back pain cannot be cured with rest. To get into bed, you have to have extreme back pain. What your joints need is movement, because even though they can hurt you, if you stop, the inflammation stays attached and is a vicious circle. If you move a lot when it hurts,

Have You Detected An Increase In Cases Of Back Pain As A Result Of Emotional Factors?

 Yes, is that now with the economic crisis is a very difficult time. We must also bear in mind that low back pain is stationary when the sun comes up, people feel better. When at work you cannot afford to take the leave because the company is doing poorly, you do not go to the doctor. Right now people get a lot fewer casualties for this ailment, although I think it does not mean there are fewer people with back pain.

The people hold more this ailment for not having to take the low, and it is that it does not give him the importance that must have?

I think that when people make the small is because it is wrong. The question is when you are going to work with pain, and in spite of it, you do nothing. I do not say that you have to take the low for all lumbago, is more, I think it is not always necessary, but it is true that there comes a time when you may have no choice but to stop because you have two or three intense episodes in the same month. It is also true that low back pain often has an essential relationship with labor factors so that a low one would have the positive component. Everything has its opposite, so it is necessary to make an analysis and know what these pains can be attributed to.

Which is the group most exposed to turning their back pain into a chronic disease?

Depends on many factors, but mainly are those who are exposed to physical overload or stress. Also people with family problems or those who are caretakers of other sick people. Homemakers would also be in that group. Even people with specific fears, people who assume back pain as a very ill thing and who internalize it in such a way that they do not know how to minimize it. The problem is that sometimes it is difficult for us to identify those signals that the body sends us and we lack awareness. In this sense, we must emphasize that it is essential to take care of oneself. In today’s daily life it is difficult to reach all obligations, and every time we put more burdens until there comes a time when we stop taking care.
