Chiropractic is a primary health care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine. These problems of the musculoskeletal system can be caused by accidents, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture, illness and everyday wear and tear.
No. It is illegal for anyone in the UK to use the title 'chiropractor' or to imply that they are a chiropractor unless they are registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). In common with medical practitioners and dentists, the chiropractic profession is regulated by law. The Chiropractors Act 1994 provides statutory regulation for the profession and the title 'chiropractor' is protected under this legislation. By law, the GCC must check those who apply for registration to make sure that:
• they have a chiropractic qualification,
• are of good character and are physically and mentally fit
• set and monitor standards of education and training
• set standards of practice and conduct
• deal with any complaints about the conduct or practice of chiropractors.

As yet, it is not widespread even though chiropractic care is included in the Musculoskeletal Services Framework published by the Department of Health. There is also a pilot scheme in Northern Ireland that includes funding for chiropractic.
The Committee of Advertising Practice's (CAP) position is that advertisers who use the title 'Dr' should take care not to imply that they hold a general medical qualification. In general, CAP advises that if they do not possess such a qualification, advertisers should not call themselves 'Dr'. Chiropractors are therefore advised not to use the title 'Dr' in their advertisements or in any information targeted at patients.
