How Are Chiropractors Educated And Trained?

Your HealthWorks Regina chiropractor, like your family doctor or dentist, is a primary contact provider. No referral is needed to see a chiropractor. Doctors of Chiropractic today train and study at the university level for at minimum of eight years. Like other licensed healthcare providers, such as medical or dental students, chiropractors complete an undergraduate degree before they can apply to a chiropractic college. They complete a minimum of 4,600 hours of academic study including classroom instruction, clinical science and internship. During their intense training, chiropractors will have become proficient in:

  • Basic sciences, including anatomy, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, microbiology, clinical sciences and X-ray diagnosis.
  • Specialized training in the science and art of chiropractic treatment.
  • Hands-on practice (manual medicine) through clinical internship.
