General Chiropractic Council
The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) regulates all chiropractors in the UK to ensure the safety of patients undergoing chiropractic treatment.
The GCC is an independent statutory body established by Parliament to regulate the chiropractic profession. We protect the health and safety of the public by ensuring high standards of practice in the chiropractic profession.
The title of 'chiropractor' is protected by law and it is a criminal offence for anyone to describe themselves as any sort of chiropractor without being registered with the GCC. We check that all chiropractors are properly qualified and are fit to practise.
McTimoney Chiropractic Association
The McTimoney method of chiropractic was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago and is taught only at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Abingdon, near Oxford. It is well known for being a precise, whole body approach to
chiropractic care. The gentle nature of the McTimoney method makes it especially suitable for people of all ages.
