Chiropractic is a healthcare profession, and not a single treatment. In the UK the Chiropractic profession is governed and regulated by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). The GCC was established in 1994 under the Chiropractor’s Act.

The GCC states that, chiropractic is a health profession 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.


Chiropractors (practitioners of chiropractic) use their hands to treat disorders of the bones, muscles and joints.


Chiropractors use a range of techniques, with an emphasis on manipulation of the spine. They may also offer advice on diet, exercise, postural correction and lifestyle. They will give rehabilitation programmes that involve exercises to do in your own time.
