In common with other healthcare professionals such as, medical practitioners, nurses 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. The statutory regulator is the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practise as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.

All British Chiropractic Association members are required to be registered with the GCC.

You can find a registered chiropractor in your area by searching the Register on the General Chiropractic Council’s website.
As well as searching the General Chiropractic Council (GCC)’s Register, look out for the “I’m Registered” mark on a chiropractor’s website and marketing materials to ensure a chiropractor is registered with the GCC.
