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.
Our Chiropractors are registered members with
- the General Chiropractic Council (GCC)
- the Royal College of Chiropractors
- the British Chiropractic Association (BCA)
- International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS)
Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make often gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body’s natural healing ability.
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor. A chiropractor is trained to diagnose your problem and will refer you to another health-care practitioner if necessary. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery. The effectiveness of chiropractic treatment is supported by research as well as by various UK government and medical organisations.
We are trained in a wide variety of techniques, some of which include:
• Joint adjusting techniques for the spine, limbs & joints
• Dry Needling - Medical Acupuncture
• Deep Tissue Massage
• Active release therapy
• Muscle Stretching techniques
• Fascial release
• Bespoke exercise rehabilitation
• Functional Range Release Systems
• McKenzie Method
• Management of Disc problems.

What are the differences between a chiropractor, an osteopath and a physio?
Both professions are very similar using manipulation, exercise and advice as a package of care to help musculoskeletal problems and their effects on the nervous system – using the best current evidence available.
Both are regulated by acts of Parliament. Neither is better than the other. It is more important to find a good practitioner who understands your problem and whom you trust to sort it out.We hope this has been helpful.
