What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healing art that is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system. Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body’s inability to adapt to its environment. Or the inability of the body to heal itself due to some sort of altered function.
How do you become a Chiropractor?
First a prospective chiropractor must complete at least 90 credit hours of undergraduate classes followed by 4 years of chiropractic college. The program is very similar to medical school in classes and hours.
After graduation the Chiropractor must pass both National and State board examinations before a license to practice is issued.
A chiropractor must also complete continuing education each year to maintain their license.
What does a Chiropractor treat?
A Chiropractor can help with many musculoskeletal and neurological disorders. Symptoms such as back pain, carpal tunnel, even fibromyalgia can respond well to chiropractic care. The best way to find out if you can be helped by a chiropractor is to schedule a consultation and the chiropractor will let you know for sure.
