Doctors of chiropractic are trained in much the same way that medical doctors are trained. Chiropractic colleges in America are accredited by the United States Council on Chiropractic Education, an agency that has been recognized since 1974 by the United States Office of Education.

Chiropractic colleges like medical schools require four (4) full time years of academic training. Chiropractic students receive training in the sciences, anatomy, physiology, toxicology and other subjects equivalent to that taught in medical schools.

Medical doctors receive additional training in pharmacology whereas doctors of chiropractic receive additional training on biomechanics, spinal adjustments, nutrition and other alternative healing methods. After graduating from chiropractic college, doctors of chiropractic have to pass a state board licensing examination.

Doctors of chiropractic may choose to continue with post graduate training in a specialty such as nutrition, radiology, sports or worker's compensation.

Doctor's of chiropractic are required to continue their education in order to renew their state licenses. These additional courses are taken year after year to insure the doctor of chiropractic is up to date with current research and new techniques.

Doctors of chiropractic are not only well trained but also know when to refer to other health care providers to insure the best possible health care for their patients.
