WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
is a health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis,
treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems
with the joints, especially related to
treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal
manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that
are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use
a variety of techniques including, muscle relaxation techniques, exercise and dry needling as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.
chiropractors are best known for treating back and neck pain, which
they do very well, patients also consult chiropractors regarding a range
of other, related conditions.
Chiropractors take a natural approach to health. Their education places special emphasis on anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, biomechanics, X-ray, spinal adjusting techniques, and related subjects. This demanding curriculum prepares chiropractors to distinguish problems that can be treated conservatively from those that may be symptoms of a condition requiring medical intervention
Before graduation, there is a closely supervised internship at the Chiropractic College Clinic, where the trainee chiropractor treats patients. This gives valuable hands-on experience.
After graduation there is a post graduation training scheme of one year where you work under the supervision of a designated chiropractor. This further solidifies your chiropractic training.
All UK chiropractors complete a minimum of 30 hours of post-graduate education on an annual basis. This can, amongst other things consist of attending seminars, scientific symposia, and reading professional journals to keep up with the latest research.
As common with medical practitioners and
dentists, the chiropractic profession is regulated by law.
Act 1994 provides statutory regulation for the
profession and the title 'chiropractor' is protected under this
legislation. The statutory regulator is the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practise as a chiropractor
without being registered with the GCC.
