FAQs

  • Introduction

    Chiropractors are health care practitioners who specialize in spinal manipulation. They can help patients improve their mobility and posture and assist in pain relief and healing after an injury. People visit chiropractors for an array of health problems, including back and neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, and damages sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Chiropractors also treat patients regularly, providing preventive care or relief for ongoing issues, such as arthritis.

    Chiropractors use a variety of techniques, including manual manipulation of the spine and extremities. In many cases, chiropractors work alongside other alternative health care professionals to provide patients with holistic care. That may include acupuncturists, massage therapists, and osteopaths.
  • Is a chiropractor a doctor?

    While chiropractors aren't medical doctors, they must have specialized training and licensing to practice. Completion of this training makes them doctors of chiropractic care (DC). This title lets them practice chiropractic techniques; however, it doesn't allow them to perform invasive medical procedures or provide other medical care.

  • Do chiropractors go to medical school?

    Chiropractors don't go to medical school. Instead, they attend chiropractic school to obtain a DC degree and pass a series of exams from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, which enables them to get adequate licensing to treat patients.

  • How to become a chiropractor?

    To become a chiropractor, you first need to achieve an undergraduate degree in biology, kinesiology, or a similar subject prior to applying to chiropractic school. Once accepted, you'll have to undergo four years of intensive schooling that includes a combination of practical and classroom-based learning.

  • How much do chiropractors make? 

    According to PayScale, the average annual salary for U.S.-based chiropractors is $60,577. Top paid chiropractors earn as much as $75,848 annually, and those just starting out earn just over $56,000 per year.

  • How long does it take to become a chiropractor?

    Obtaining the right degrees to become a chiropractor typically takes about eight years. That includes a four-year undergraduate degree and a four-year Doctor of Chiropractic program. Additional time may be necessary to prepare for licensing exams.

  • Are chiropractors safe?

    When performed correctly by a trained, licensed professional, chiropractic adjustments are safe. But there are inherent risks associated with receiving chiropractic care, including nerve compression and disk herniation. These risks are rare and typically occur with certain adjustments.
