How much education does a chiropractor have?

A Doctorate of Chiropractic requires an intense education. Its curriculum includes in most cases: a Bachelors Degree focused on the sciences, 4 years of Chiropractic Education and pass post-graduate written and oral examinations at both the state and national levels along with at least 900 hours completed as a clinical intern.  Curriculum includes over 3000 hours in anatomy, physiology, pathology, microbiology, neurology, radiology, diagnosis and physio-therapies as well as learning specific chiropractic techniques to help patients.

 

I have heard a friend say that she goes for an ‘adjustment’ by her Chiropractor.  What is an adjustment?

An adjustment or manipulation is the introduction of a controlled forced movement to the spinal or extremity joints to correct a misalignment. Varying degrees of force are applied based on the condition and/or the tolerance of the patient.  The reason we perform adjustments is to treat, correct and ultimately prevent neurological, skeletal, and soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) conditions.

 

How important is it to have proper posture?

Remember when your mom told you to sit up straight as a child, she wasn’t kidding.  Posture is an outward sign of either good or bad function.  As we age, there is a natural tendency to want to slouch or slump, this rolling forward of the shoulders can put more stress and tension on our neck and upper back which can lead to more problems later in life including, pain, stiffness and headaches.  Chiropractors are trained in examining a patient’s posture as well as evaluating the spine to see if they can benefit from chiropractic care.
