Chiropractic is a government regulated profession in the UK, and in order to practise in the UK all chiropractors must have undertaken a four year 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.
Please see the General Chiropractic Council and British Chiropractic Association websites for further details.
Chiropractic is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal manipulation or adjustment.
