Chiropractic care can help you with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions related to your musculoskeletal system (your joints, muscles, and nerves). 

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?

Chiropractic is a government regulated profession in the UK, and in order to practise in the UK all chiropractors must have undertaken a degree course at a recognised university, and complete a one year post-graduate development course (PRTs) to be able to register with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). To retain their annual registration chiropractors are required to continually update their skills through continued professional development (CPD) each year.
