What training and qualifications does a chiropractor need?

In order to register, a practitioner must hold a qualification recognised by the GCC. As aforementioned, General Chiropractic Council (GCC) regulates the chiropractic profession. Anyone who wants to practice as a chiropractor must register with this professional body. Furthermore, The Chiropractors Act 1994 provides statutory regulation for the profession. It also protects the title ‘chiropractor’ under legislation. Therefore it is a criminal offence for anyone to call themselves a chiropractor if they’re not registered with the GCC. They must also agree to adhere to a strict code of ethics and conduct. Foreign applicants who hold an equivalent qualification must also take a competency test. If you are looking to find a chiropractor, our directory only lists practitioners who comply with our policy. This means they have the relevant qualification and insurance cover and are members of the GCC.
