The education received by chiropractors is extremely thorough and demanding. Aspiring doctors of chiropractic receive extensive teachings in the structure and functioning of the human body, the disease processes, and how health is achieved and maintained.
There is an emphasis placed on the management of spinal disorders and their role in the overall health and wellness of the individual.
Similar to the requirements of medical schools, prior to entering chiropractic college students must first complete 4 years of premed undergraduate studies. During this time there is an emphasis on basic sciences including organic chemistry, general chemistry, physics, biology, and psychology
Upon successful completion of the undergraduate studies, those students who are accepted to a chiropractic college enter a 4-5 year academic program, which is similar in content to medical school.
Course work includes an in-depth study of anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, radiology, biomechanics, spinal adjustive techniques, including a variety of other health-related areas.
The primary focus of the chiropractic education is to teach the student how to recognize and effectively treat a wide variety of soft tissue disorders in order to reduce pain and discomfort, allow for effective and proper healing, restore normal body biomechanics and improve overall health.
