WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
Chiropractic is a primary health care profession focused on your health and wellbeing.
Chiropractors offer a package of care with an emphasis on the spine and the neuro-musculo-skeletal system and how conditions affecting these areas can affect your health and performance. Chiropractors do not use medicines or surgery and the gentle manual approaches we use are extremely safe and comfortable to receive.
A package of chiropractic care is used regularly to help maintain good posture, promote health and improve performance, no matter what it is you do, from a high performance athlete to a senior member of the community enjoying a potter in the garden. Patients undergoing chiropractic care often report benefits from back, neck and general joint pain, sciatica, headaches, minor sports injuries and other similar conditions.
Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle advice.
Referral: If your chiropractor feels your problem is not suitable for chiropractic care or needs further investigation, they will liaise with your GP and other health care providers to arrange an appropriate referral, as long as you provide your permission to do so.
Chiropractic students in the UK study for four to five years to gain their Integrated Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) degree. In the United Kingdom, chiropractors are Statutorily Regulated by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC)
