In the last two decades, the chiropractic profession has come a long way towards establishing itself in the UK health care system through the publication of good evidence. This helped with the passage of the Chiropractors Act and setting up of the General Chiropractic Council. Some involvement with the NHS took place, which enhanced the status that had been achieved, leading to a greater understanding of chiropractic among other healthcare professions.
