The skill and technique of the Doctor of Chiropractic does not come easy. Just as the medical physician must go through 4 years of medical school, the chiropractic physician must go through 10 trimesters (3 years, 3 months year round) of education, with emphasis on anatomy, physiology, neurology, pathology, public health, and an extremely diversified health care education, with the final emphasis on the training of the chiropractic adjustment and the adjunctive treatments that we are permitted by our license as doctors to perform which varies from state to state.
