Chiropractor School: How To Be A License Chiropractic Practitioner in the Philippines
I just had my very first chiropractic session a while ago and it was bone cracking! I think I am addicted to it. So I was wondering, how to be a licensed chiropractic practitioner in the Philippines because I know it is more popular in the US and Canada. As a matter of fact, the only place that can crack bones safely is at KARADA, a japan-based seitai salon. You can read my KARADA experience on my other blog and see it for yourself.
Chiropractic is a form of pseudomedicine that focuses on diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the belief that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. - Source: Wikipedia
Unlike deep tissue massage, this is I think more delicate since the practitioner will deal with the spine and bones directly. One bad movement can make the patient paralyzed or worst, dead.
According to Doc Mike's blog, there are 45 University level in Chiropractic programs: 18 in the USA, 2 in Canada, 3 in UK, 4 in Australia, 1 in Switzerland, 2 in Brazil, 1 in Chile, 2 in Mexico, 1 in New Zealand, 2 in Spain, 2 in France, 1 in Denmark, 1 in Sweden, 2 in South Africa, 1 in South Korea, 1 in Japan, 1 in Malaysia. The new standards require an equivalent of a B.Sc first, after 12 year Int’l level high school. Although some countries have slight variations to this for their citizens, foreign student standards are strict. Be prepared to spend 5 years to train as a chiropractor as the course involves extensive basic sciences and clinical sciences, a formal 1-2 year internship.
