How much schooling does a Chiropractor have?

Typically, the chiropractic doctorate program is four years and is preceded by a four-year undergraduate degree. All chiropractors must pass four national board examinations and then become licensed in each state in which they wish to practice. Doctors of Chiropractic must obtain several hours of continuing education each year to maintain their licensure.

Do you prescribe drugs?

No, chiropractic provides an all-natural approach to a variety of conditions. Thus, chiropractic is a drug-free pathway to health. If after a thorough examination your chiropractor believes it necessary to refer you to another physician, he/she will do so.

Can you help kids, the elderly?

Yes, chiropractic is beneficial and is safe for people of all ages.

What is the “pop?”

Joints build up deposits of nitrogen gas. Sometimes, during a chiropractic adjustment, a vacuum is created and this gas is released. They can create the audible “crunch” sound. There are no bones actually breaking or cracking. However, many techniques may use tables or devices to restore vertebral alignment without audible release.
