Chiropractic Studies

By: Michael Bustamante

Chiropractic studies today are quite diversified; and in some chiropractic schools, there are a variety of undergraduate, graduate, pre-chiropractic, chiropractic, and other degree programs that are offered.

Students seeking chiropractic studies that will lead to becoming a doctor of chiropractic will need to first earn their Bachelor's degree and/or post-secondary education in prerequisite courses. In most cases, students will need to have a solid academic background in anatomy, biology, chemistry, diagnosis, embryology, microbiology, neurology, pathology, physics, and psychology - to name just a few fields of pre-chiropractic studies.

Typically, chiropractic studies are focused on spinal function and its relationship to not only the nervous systems, but to overall health and wellbeing. Because it is a self healing art, chiropractic principles and philosophies are built on the foundation that the human body is directed and regulated by the brain, spinal cord and interrelated nerves. The school of thought behind the study of chiropractic is that in order to obtain maximum health, spinal adjustments are necessary to remove spinal blockages to restore natural health. At minimum, comprehensive chiropractic studies are comprised of over 4,000 classroom, clinical and laboratory hours, with strong emphasis on laboratory and physical diagnosis, geriatrics, hands-on chiropractic adjustment techniques, neurology, nutrition, orthopedics, physiotherapy, radiology, and many other associated studies.

To attain one's doctor of chiropractic degree, students who are engaged in chiropractic studies must understand that they will need to pass exams given through the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners to gain licensure. Furthermore, the majority of States call for practicing chiropractors to participate in a set amount of continuing education hours each year to maintain their license to practice.

In addition to doctorate programs, chiropractic studies provided at chiropractic colleges and schools are commonly expanded by professional, postgraduate, and/or post doctorate courses in specialty areas of the field. Frequently included in these chiropractic studies are discipline-specific training in applied chiropractic sciences, family practice, neurology, nutrition, orthopedics, pediatrics, and other related fields of this natural healing art.
