Chiropractic is a primary contact health profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of conditions that are due to problems with bones, joints, muscles and nerves, particularly those related to the spine. Chiropractors may treat all the joints of the body, but more commonly the joints of the spine often with manual therapy using their hands to perform a wide range of skilled, precise manipulation, mobilisation or soft tissue techniques.
Chiropractic in Estonia has currently no statutory regulation and the practice of chiropractic is not regulated by the law.
All EKL members have graduated from an internationally-recognised college of chiropractic education, after a minimum of 5 years full-time training to ensure its chiropractors maintain high standards of conduct, practice, education and training.
