Chiropractors are primary care professionals and play a vital, life-changing role. Chiropractic relieves pain, increases mobility and optimizes performance through safe and effective spinal adjustments and manipulation using a variety of non-invasive techniques. Doctors of Chiropractic work one-on-one with patients, helping them improve their overall health and find relief from headaches, back, neck and joint pain, without reliance on drugs or surgery. Chiropractors must earn the Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree, which typically takes ~4 years, and obtain state licensure. A few programs will allow students to accelerate their DC studies and begin before completion of a bachelor’s degree.
