Where can I find a chiropractor?

A doctor should always be consulted prior to seeking any kind of chiropractic treatment. They can offer a thorough physical examination to determine whether any other treatment may be suitable. If it is then decided that the patient in question may benefit more from chiropractic treatment, the doctor may look into the availability of such treatment. In some instances, Primary Care Trusts are able to provide chiropractic treatment via the NHS.

However, as is often the case, chiropractic therapy may be unavailable through the National Health Service and will therefore require private treatment.

In the majority of cases, patients have sought out a private healthcare chiropractor. In these instances, you may also choose not to visit any doctor, skipping the process of obtaining a letter of referral. However, if you remain unsure about the definite nature of your complaint, a doctor’s visit may help to clarify your condition.

Finally, it is important to make sure that any chiropractor you chose to employ in therapy sessions can provide evidence that they are a registered member of the General Chiropractic Council, as any practitioner operating outside of this council may not have undertaken the specific training required for the role and will also lack the legal documentation required to be fully insured to practice.
