Chiropractic Profession

A Regulated Profession

In common with medical practitioners and dentists, all chiropractors are registered by law under the Chiropractors Act 1994 and the title ‘Chiropractor’ is protected under this legislation. The profession is statutorily regulated through the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practise as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.

All chiropractors at this clinic are members of the British Chiropractic Association and are registered with the GCC.

Education and Training

The title of chiropractor is protected by law and, as a result, only those who are registered with the government appointed regulator, the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), can call themselves chiropractors. The GCC has set the standards of education in chiropractic and all chiropractors must have graduated from an accredited institution before being accepted onto the Register.

Chiropractors who are members of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) will have completed the minimum of a four-year full-time course that has both UK regulator accreditation and internal recognition.
