In the UK there are over 2,000 practicing chiropractors and the profession is growing year on year. Nearly all chiropractors work as private health care providers, although some do provide services through the NHS.
Chiropractic is unique among health care professions in that there are internationally set standards of education, meaning that qualification from an internationally accredited education establishment truly furnishes you with a portable qualification to take across the world*.
In UK, in common with medical practitioners and dentists, all chiropractors are registered by Law under the Chiropractors Act 1994 and the title ‘Chiropractor’ is protected under this legislation.
* Individual countries may have additional specific requirements you need to fulfill before you can practice.
