What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a therapy used to treat back pain and other problems with the bones, muscles and joints. Chiropractors treat all areas of the body, but particularly concentrate on the spine. They typically use their hands to make adjustments to the joints in order to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility.

Chiropractic is tailored to the individual so a chiropractor will draw on other treatments such as acupuncture and taping depending on the client’s needs.

Chiropractors treat the cause of the problem and aim for long-term relief, not just a short-term quick fix. With chiropractic care, emphasis is on prevention and your chiropractor will give you exercises and advice to prevent reoccurrences as well as help with recovery.

Chiropractors are healthcare professionals and the chiropractic profession is regulated by law. The statutory regulator is the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practise as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC. All registered chiropractors have undergone a minimum of four years’ full-time training.
