Each year, 30 million people choose this proven form of healthcare and wellness care. A Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) must go through schooling similar to medical doctors. With the same admission requirements as medical schools, chiropractic colleges require three to four years of undergraduate study. Chiropractic students complete four to five years of extensive study to achieve their Doctorate of Chiropractic. For chiropractic and medical students, the first two years of training are similar. 

Once past those years, medical students focus on pharmacology (drugs), critical care and surgery. Chiropractic students focus on the central nervous system, methods of natural healing and causes and effects of subluxation. Prior to licensing as a Doctor of Chiropractic, students must pass a multi-day, four-part National Board Examination. States may require additional testing before granting state licensure. Each state has annual continuing education requirements Doctors of Chiropractic must complete to maintain their licenses. 

Some patients have chosen Doctors of Chiropractic as primary physicians. This does not mean the chiropractor prescribes drugs. It means the patient goes to the chiropractor for most of his or her health concerns. The Primary Physician Chiropractor would either provide care for the patient with chiropractic techniques or natural healthcare or refer the patient to the appropriate healthcare provider.
