In this post, we’ll share a few simple tips to help you find the best chiropractor in London.  These tips will help you find a professional chiropractor that you feel completely comfortable with.


Finding the best chiropractor in London for you


#1 Ask for a referral from friends and family

Asking your friends and family who they use is one of the simplest ways to find a chiropractor. They will be more than happy to tell you about their experience if they have found a great chiropractor in London.  In fact, they’ll probably have already shared their experience if they have found a chiropractor that has been able to help them.

Likewise, if they have had a poor experience, they will be able to steer you in another direction.


#2  Check online reviews

Increasingly, people rely on online reviews when making a decision as to the best chiropractor in London to visit. There are many review websites to choose from. Many people searching online will turn to Google which provides access to Google Reviews. Reading recent reviews from patients provides an insight into the type of care offered, how the chiropractor communicates with patients and also the outcomes they achieve for their patients. The number of reviews a clinic has and its star rating can also help you with the search.


#3 Check that the chiropractor is registered

Regardless of how you have come across a London chiropractor to contact, undertaking some further research is highly recommended.

Chiropractic is a regulated healthcare profession. To practice in the UK, a chiropractor must be registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). In order to be registered with the GCC, a chiropractor must have completed a degree in chiropractic from an accredited University. It is illegal for anyone to call themselves a chiropractor if they are not registered with the GCC.

You can check if a chiropractor you are considering is registered by visiting the GCC website.


#4  Does the chiropractor have adequate experience?

Chiropractors will have varying levels of, and number of years’, experience. Some chiropractors may also have experience in more specialist areas. This is something you should check to ensure that you are comfortable with their experience and that it is appropriate for your condition. The simplest way to do this is to visit their clinic’s website, which leads us to the next point.


#5 Visit the clinic’s website

A chiropractor’s clinic website can tell you a great deal about them and their clinic.  It should include details like:

  • Their treatment philosophy
  • Services and treatments they provide
  • Introduction to team members including experience of the chiropractors
  • What the premises look like
  • How and where you will receive treatment
  • Their fees and what’s included
  • Chiropractic Associations they belong to
  • Insurance providers they work with
  • Opening times
  • Clinic location, including parking and public transport information

The appearance of the website and the amount of information it contains can also give you a sense of how professional a chiropractor and the clinic is.

In summary, checking these five points should give you the confidence to visit your chosen chiropractor and receive the chiropractic treatment and care you require.
