Inside Chiropractor Careers

Things you need to know, but nobody tells you

 

Biggest Surprises


"Chiropractic Philosophical Differences...
I was surprised that there was a quite a large difference in philosophy across the profession, depending on which Chiropractic School you attended. The philosophical understanding was split down the middle between "straight" chiropractors and "mixer" chiropractors." (Chiropractor; 2013)

Career: 7 years of experience, currently based in New York, male
School: Studied Chiropractic at New York Chiropractic College in New York; completed Doctorate degree in 2005

Best & Worst Things About This Career


Chiropractor: "The best part of my career is that I am able to help people in need. For example, finding someone in pain and being able to help them get better without the use of drugs very rewarding. This happens often and many come back and become regular patients! I guess the worst part of the career is the administrative side of the field. That means handling billing and dealing with insurance companies as well as a lot of dissenting opinions from other chiropractors." (2011)

Career Tips


"Train Your Hands...
As busy as you may feel during your training, spend the extra time in chiropractic adjusting techniques. The more the training you have with your hands, the more confidence you will have in the real world." (Chiropractor; 2013)


"Avoid Massive Debt...
1. I think a person who wants to go into this field must save up some money to help defray the cost of tuition. Many students come out with a large amount of debt and this can be suffocating to many. 2. Many doctors can only do one of two things: work as an associate or open your own clinic. If you can't afford to open a clinic then plan on being an associate, but make sure you find a good doctor to work under. 3. Consider Osteopathy, Like I said, there is too much in fighting in this career field and it can be an uphill battle for those with progressive ideas. Be mentally prepared to argue your point." (Chiropractor; 2011)
