What Is Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession concerned with the diagnosis, care and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and muscles), and the effects these disorders may have on the function of the nervous system and general health.  There is an emphasis on manual techniques including spinal adjustment. When Chiropractors assess their patients they take their entire physical, emotional and social wellbeing into account. (www.gcc-uk.org)

Chiropractic is a statutory regulated profession in the UK. All chiropractors are regulated by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). Each chiropractor is required to renew their registration each year and as part of this process, the GCC checks that chiropractors have current professional indemnity insurance, remain in good health and of good character, and have met mandatory continuing professional development.
