Are you experiencing musculoskeletal problems and considering chiropractic care? Finding a qualified chiropractor is essential to ensure that you receive safe and effective care. But how do you know if your chiropractor has had proper training? Here are some tips to help you find a qualified chiropractor and get the care you need:
- Check their education and training: Look for a chiropractor who has completed a formal education program in chiropractic from an accredited college or university. This will ensure that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to perform chiropractic procedures safely and effectively.
- Check their licensing and registration: Verify that the chiropractor is licensed and registered with the relevant regulatory body in your country. This will ensure that they meet the educational and training standards required to practice chiropractic.Unfortunately in Greece, chiropractic is not currently recognized as a regulated healthcare profession. This means that there are no specific laws or regulations governing the practice of chiropractic in Greece, and anyone can legally practice as a chiropractor without any formal training or qualifications. To check Maria’s Laoudikou qualifications , you can look up her name on the website of the General Chiropractic Council in the UK https://www.gcc-uk.org/search/chiro_results?chiro_fullname=laoudikou as well as the website of the Hellenic Chiropractic Association where only those who hold a Chiropractic degree from an institute recognized by the International or European Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE), can become members https://www.chiropractic.gr/en/list-of-members https://www.chiropractic.gr/en/list-of-members/the-rest-of-greece/rhodes . These bodies maintain lists of licensed and registered chiropractors, and you can use them to verify your chiropractor’s credentials, if you look for a certified chiropractor in Greece. The Hellenic Chiropractors Association warns the public of the existence of “Fake” chiropractors with training that is considered to be substandard when compared to international standards and their inadequate knowledge that makes them dangerous to the public health at large. They also urge the public to seek a chiropractor only through the Hellenic Chiropractors Association website www.chiropractic.gr .
- Check their continuing education: Look for a chiropractor who is committed to ongoing professional development and staying up-to-date with the latest research and practices in chiropractic. This will ensure that they are providing the most effective and up-to-date care.
