Chiropractic and the NHS

Complementary therapies are not usually available on the NHS, but chiropractic is an exception. Despite this, use of the therapy on the NHS is limited. As it stands, just over a quarter of doctor surgeries are able to provide chiropractic treatment or make referrals to NHS chiropractors. This means not everyone can access chiropractic treatment on the NHS in their local area.

As a result, many people prefer to find a chiropractor that practices privately. Your GP can refer you to a practitioner for private treatment. Or you can arrange to see one yourself by using our online directory.
