Career in Medicine

Athletic trainer

Areas of expertise that are offered for athletic trainers are risk management, optimal performances, pain management and prompt recovery from injuries, in some places of the world you can only be an athletic trainer if you have been given a license to practice in that jurisdiction.

Chiropractor

Chiropractors in this day and age are predominantly popular in Europe and Northern America; chiropractors treat their patients either manually or with manipulative therapy for the treatment of vertebrate subluxations, in lay mans terms that means that most of their patients suffer from lower back pain. One of the many controversies of modern science is on this subject, many scientists say that it is a branch of science which has not necessarily been proven with the treatment of lower back and vertebrate pain and this has caused many people labeling the practice as pseudo science. Mainstream chiropractors have also suffered because a vast majority of them do not believe in immunization, prompting many people who are pro vaccination to turn a blind eye towards this practice.

Nutritionist/Dietician

Basically a dietitian is a person who is an expert in food and nutrition and accordingly advises his or her patients on what to eat and what not to eat in order for them to have a good and balanced diet. Dietitians can work in the fields of healthcare, the food industry and educational arenas. Dietitians participate in studies of different food, extracting the nutrional value of each meal and imparting it to their patients and specific groups. The job of a dietitian is also an educational one; with the amount of research that is done the people at the end of the day are the ones who cash in on this. They can either work in hospitals, nursing homes or can even have a private practice.
