NOTE: The UK regulatory body, the General Chiropractic Council, claims that it is 'protecting patients' and 'setting standards'. However, the legislative framework for the practice of chiropractic in the UK does not specify the style or the scope of practice. This allows UK chiropractors to recommend and administer a number of treatments which are not supported by reliable scientific research (e.g. vitalistic subluxation-based care, craniosacral therapy, applied kinesiology and regular wellness/corrective/preventive maintenance care, etc.).

Many students take out massive loans when they are in their early 20s only to discover later that chiropractic is a fake, unethical profession." James Randi Educational Foundation
