Finding a good, ethical Musculoskeletal Health Professional

Finding a good, ethical Musculoskeletal Health Professional should be easy, right? Unfortunately, the musculoskeletal health and wellness field can be rather hit and miss, and there are plenty of bad operators out there.

Image removed.One would like to think that healthcare professionals have the (patient's / consumer's) best interests at heart. However, unfortunately, the unsavoury truth is that is not always the case. The Musculoskeletal Wellness field is huge and largely unregulated, though immoral and unethical actors operate even within the regulated professions. Anybody can set themselves up to work with the Musculoskeletal and Wellness field and with little or no training. Alarmingly, and with social media's advent, marketers actively target health professionals with their highly dubious tried and tested sales marketing tactics. Many of these tactics have no place within the healthcare environment and directly contrast to professional ethics within the sector. Hence, it can often be challenging for consumers to make well-informed decisions when bad actors utilise highly lucrative and dubious sales and marketing techniques. The full article about Finding a good, ethical Musculoskeletal Health Professional aims to help educate consumers to make better-informed decisions.
