All British Chiropractic Association chiropractors have undergone a minimum of a four year, fulltime, internationally accredited degree course.
Studies include the medical sciences, clinical diagnostic skills, orthopaedic and neurological testing, and the taking and reading of x-rays. They are also trained to have a complete repertoire of chiropractic adjustment methods to suit the varied needs of patients and treat the whole range of musculoskeletal conditions.
Soon after graduation, chiropractors follow a postgraduate training scheme (PRT), which provides the framework for a period of professional development. PRT enables newly qualified chiropractors to work in professional clinical settings in regular contact with more experienced colleagues who act as trainer/mentors.
In addition to practical clinical aspects, further structured education is provided. Each graduate is partnered with a recognised chiropractic trainer with whom they have regular contact. Each graduate must fulfil a range of learning requirements. Newly graduated chiropractors thus complete the smooth transition to autonomous professional practice in the clinical setting.
The chiropractor's learning continues throughout his/her professional career. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is now a statutory requirement, monitored by the General Chiropractic Council.
Chiropractic treatments tackle many conditions including minor sports injuries, acute “whiplash” associated disorders, neck pain and back pain.
