| Before Chiropractic Schools accept one into their educational system, it is recommended that students have earned a degree in the arts or sciences from an accredited college or university. Chiropractic schools also require applicants to have at least 90 semester hours in English, social sciences or humanities, organic and inorganic chemistry, biology, physics, and psychology as well. |
Chiropractic schools offer education and training in chiropractic health treatments. Teaching a broad spectrum of topics of diagnostics and treatment for persons suffering from muscular, nervous and skeletal system problems; chiropractic schools and colleges stand strong on the firm belief that interference within these systems can disrupt normal functioning and lowers resistance to disease. Chiropractic schools are holistic educational systems that place emphasis on the patient's overall well-being. By evaluating numerous factors such as one's exercise, diet, rest, environment and heredity; chiropractic schools teach prospective physicians to use natural, drug-free, non-surgical health treatments that rely on the body's self-healing mechanisms.
After completion of the chiropractic school of choice, a four-part exam is administered by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. However, state examinations may supplement the National Board testing -- dependent upon individual state requirements.
Coincidentally, 70 percent of chiropractors go into solo practice. While some chiropractors go on to instruct, others conduct research at other chiropractic schools, institutions and colleges; and some work in hospitals and clinics.
Once one has earned his or her degree through chiropractic schools, s/he can expect to earn anywhere from $36k - $111k. On average, self-employed chiropractors tend to earn more than salaried chiropractors. Overall, (according to the American Chiropractic Association), income for all chiropractors averages in the neighborhood of $86k per annual.
