A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft tissue manipulation (By World Federation of Chiropractic, 2001).
By World Federation of Chiropractic, 2001 Chiropractic is regulated by Act of Parliament in the United Kingdom. The chiropractic profession is regulated by the law (Chiropractic Act 1994) and this gives regulatory powers to the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). In the UK to use the title "chiropractor" practitioners must be registered with the General Chiropractic Council to sue the title ‘chiropractor’.

Chiropractors use a number of different techniques...
Eunjoo is advanced SOT practionor.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), developed by Dr Bertrand Dejarnett in the USA 1925, a comprehensive gentle and innovative technique. DeJarnette spent decades performing clinical research to develop a unique chiropractic approach.
Cranial motion is a function of the pliability of the cranial vault influenced by the regular motion of respiration, muscular contractions, and circulatory flow, which together affect what is referred to as the primary respiratory mechanism (PRM).
Eunjoo completed AFMCP in 2021 and has continued studying to understand the complex problems of patients in order to provide the best care as a chiropractor. Therefore, resolution often involves cooperation between a chiropractor and other healthcare professionals.
Eunjoo is on the recommended practitioners list in the treatment and management of Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP). The Pelvic Girdle Partnership is a charitable organisation set up to provide support and information to women with PGP.
