If a person wishes to call themselves a chiropractor in the UK, they are required to be registered with us. It is a criminal offence for a person who is not registered with us to describe themselves as a chiropractor. 

Section 32(1) of the Chiropractors Act 1994 provides:

A person who (whether expressly or by implication) describes himself as a chiropractor, chiropractic practitioner, chiropractitioner, chiropractic physician, or any other kind of chiropractor, is guilty of an offence unless he is a registered chiropractor.

The GCC will process any such concerns with reference to the GCC’s Code of Practice for Criminal Investigations and Prosecutions under the Chiropractors Act 1994, July 2012.

If you have concerns that someone is describing themselves as a chiropractor and they are not registered with us then you can inform us below.
