What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine.

Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.

Although chiropractors are best known for treating back and neck pain, which they do very well, patients also consult chiropractors regarding a range of other, related conditions.

Who are Chiropractors?

A professional that practices chiropractic is known as a chiropractor. In the UK the title of 'chiropractor' is protected under The Chiropractic Act (1994) legislation. The statutory regulator is the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practice as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.

Once completing a chiropractic degree and demonstrating competency to register with the GCC, a chiropractor will still have to demonstrate continuing professional development to broaden their knowledge and keep updated with the latest research, ensuring chiropractic patients are receiving the best possible care. Our chiropractors are also registered with the British Chiropractic Association.
