Which body work professionals to visitYou’ve read last weeks blog and know who you want to see for your particular issue out of Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Podiatrists, Sports Massage Therapists, and Personal Trainers, now you need to choose which one to actually go and visit, but how do you go about that if you don’t know of any?

Which body work professionals to visit?

First, ask your friends and family, or work colleagues, to see if they have visited one of the above professionals and get a direct recommendation, this can also make the process a little less daunting if you know someone has good things to say about them.

If no one has a recommendation for you, then you could ask around on social media, Spotted Hinckley often has threads of such conversations, and it can give you a good feel for if someone is popular. Once you have settled on a name on there, next do your research.

Look for their google reviews. Read the good and the less good, get a feel for the therapist from these

Take a look at their website to see if what they say and how they present themselves resonates with you. Have a look to see if there are any logos for their governing body, if the website is well cared for and has up to date information on it with easy to contact buttons or information.

Also look at their social media presence, how do they come across? Do they post regularly and what do they say when they post? Are they more concerned with telling you who you shouldn’t visit to help you while also telling you that you should choose their profession only? Avoid these people at all costs. I have recently had experience with someone who mentioned that sports massage was useless several times not long ago, and that you should only choose their profession. I simply say to this; massage works, and it is why it has existed for thousands of years longer than any other body working profession. If a therapist of any kind is that kind of negative about other professions, question how they would treat you and talk about you.
