What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession focused on spinal health and well being. Doctors of chiropractic provide vital, life-changing care to over 35 million American adults annually. They are concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system and effects of such disorders on the nervous system and overall health. Chiropractic relieves pain, increases mobility, and optimizes performance through safe and effective spinal adjustments and manipulation.

Doctors of chiropractic receive extensive education and training at a Dept of Education-accredited chiropractic program in the US and Canada. They are licensed to practice in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico and in many countries around the world.

Chiropractic is recognized as the leading profession practicing  neuromusculoskeletal care. Doctors of chiropractic take a holistic approach, providing safe, effective, patient-centered care that empowers people to live their life to the fullest.

Doctors of chiropractic are bound by the same ethical standards and regulations as medical or osteopathic professions. Chiropractic services are covered by insurance including Medicare. 

Why study chiropractic?

Doctors of chiropractic make a difference every day, helping patients improve their health and quality of life naturally. If you’re looking for a truly hands-on, patient-centered healthcare career, chiropractic is for you.
