Yes. They are physicians, licensed by the state, to diagnose and treat both chiropractic and medical conditions. Like your dentist, the chiropractor is a specialist. For them, medical school is not appropriate, because the curriculum is too broad. All doctors require essentially the same courses for the first two years of their professional education; it is the next two years that separate one kind of doctor from the next. The chiropractic profession takes a drug-free approach when assisting their patients to improve and/or maintain their health. more

Yes. The degree that chiropractors hold is "D.C.", which stands for Doctor of Chiropractic. Becoming a chiropractor takes on the average seven years of school in a curriculum similar to a medical doctor's education (instead of training in pharmacology and surgery chiropractors have more training in radiology, neurology and spinal adjusting techniques). Chiropractic colleges are accredited by the Council of Chiropractic Education (CCE), and are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. In order to receive a license to practice chiropractic, comprehensive State and National Board examinations must be passed and continuing education must be earned each year. more

Both chiropractors and medical doctors work with diagnosing and treating conditions of the human body. There is a lot of similarity in the education that chiropractors and medical doctors receive - but there are important differences as well.

In the sense that doctor means 'educator' then yes, most chiropractors spend time educating their patients about health and wellbeing. Something medical doctors ironically rarely have time for. In the legal sense, yes again, chiropractors can call themselves doctors as long as they make it clear they are not medical doctors. Chiropractors are trained similar to medical doctors for the first two years, but then spend much more time on neurology, orthopaedics, physical assessment, radiology and radiography. Medical doctors spend this time learning about drugs, surgery and disease. more
