Chiropractors use spinal adjustments and manipulation to treat patients with problems related to the neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, bones, muscles, etc.).
To be a chiropractor, a person usually first obtains a four-year bachelor’s degree in any field of study. Then, one must earn a four-year Doctor of Chiropractic degree (DC). You must be ready to be in school for a long time to do this!
