Today's Doctors of Chiropractic have six  or more years of college and as much or more training than most medical doctors.

Have you ever wondered just how much education your chiropractor really has? The facts may very well surprise you.

Today, at least six years of highly specialized college training are required to graduate and earn licensure, and chiropractic has gained recognition as a comprehensive, scientifically sound force among the healing arts. Only chiropractic concerns itself with the interrelationship of structure and body functions, and only chiropractic effectively utilizes natural, drugless methods of treatment-primarily spinal adjustments.

The Doctor of Chiropractic readily acknowledges that the early, formative years of chiropractic education-like those in medicine--Left much to be desired. But this is true of every science and profession.

Look at these typical basic educational requirements for medical school graduates compared to those of Doctors of Chiropractic.

Chiropractors must meet stringent educational requirements. Including approximately 600 MS. of internship, which qualifies them for licensure in all states and Canadian provinces. In many states, they must pass a basic science examination-the same exam that is given to medical students. They must also pass a rigid chiropractic board examination. And California, for example, requires continuing educational seminars for annual license renewal.

If you have friends who are uninformed or misinformed about chiropractic education, why not share this knowledge with them. They too, may benefit from today's scientific chiropractic care.
