How can I be sure my chiropractor is suitably qualified?

Chiropractic is one of the fastest growing independent health care professions in the UK and is now regulated by a Government appointment regulatory body – the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). Anyone calling themselves a chiropractor MUST be registered with the General Chiropractic Council and this is renewed annually. This means that members of the public can visit any chiropractor with the reassurance that he or she has met all the required standards set by the General Chiropractic Council to ensure the safety of the public.

All chiropractors are continually updating their skills through a mandatory programme of Continuous Professional Development.
