Did you know chiropractors are taught nutrition as part of their 5 year course? Here at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend we have recently participated in some great professional development courses on gut health to update and further our knowledge. Ask us about the “weed, seed and feed” programme for restoring and healing your gut. It may do wonders for you-naturally.

All chiropractors like to take a natural approach towards health. Chiropractors are educated specifically on anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, bio-mechanics, X-ray, spinal adjusting techniques, and related subjects. This extremely demanding curriculum helps to prepare chiropractic doctors to distinguish problems that can be treated without surgery or drugs from those that may be symptoms of a condition requiring medical intervention.

Before graduating, there is a closely supervised internship at the Chiropractic College Clinic, where the trainee chiropractor treats patients. This gives valuable hands-on experience.

After graduation there is a post graduation training scheme of one year where you work under the supervision of a designated chiropractor. This further solidifies your chiropractic training.

As part of the on-going training, all chiropractors in the UK complete a minimum of 30 hours of post-graduate education on an annual basis. This can, amongst other things consist of attending seminars, scientific symposia, and reading professional journals to keep up with the latest research.

If you would like to know more about nutrition or have other concerns please get in touch with us as we offer a lot of help and advice. You can contact us at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend on 01702 430430.
