All Chiropractors that practice in the UK must be registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) by law. This statutory body regulates the profession in the UK ensuring the safety of patients as well as maintaining high standards of practice. The GCC sets the standard of chiropractic education, conduct and practice for the UK.
Chiropractors must work within strict ethical and professional boundaries and are required to maintain ongoing professional training (CPD) to ensure they are practicing in the best interest of their patients
Training and accreditation
In the UK, chiropractors require a minimum of 4 yrs of training at a recognised university or college.
The training is vigorous and besides the medical sciences such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and pathology, radiology, general medicine and diagnosis they also focus on biomechanics. Treatment options such as manipulation, exercise therapy, soft tissue rehabilitation, acupuncture, dry needling and in depth nutritional training are just a few of the disciplines mastered.
Dr Nothling completed a 6 year doctorate program at Life University in the United States. Since then, Dr Nothling has furthered his studies to extend his disciplines related to chiropractic and the healthcare field. For a full list of accreditations, please see below.
