Chiropractic is a healthcare profession which diagnoses, treats and helps prevent conditions relating to the nerves, muscles and joints. Chiropractors use a variety of manual techniques including gentle manipulation as well as patient education, exercise and advice.
The term Chiropractic comes from the Greek words for hand and practice. Chiropractors in the UK are regulated by the General Chiropractic Council, a statutory body established to protect patients and set standards for the profession.
Chiropractic can treat a variety of conditions including low-back and neck pain, neck related headaches, and problems affecting the arm and leg joints/muscles.
