Chiropractic doctors start the path to their career with a bachelors degree in pre-med science. They then attend chiropractic school for an additional four years. The programs are rigorous and require students to obtain a full and deep knowledge of the human body through classes and clinical training. Doctors of chiropractic work with your primary care physician to develop a plan that will help you get healthy and stay healthy.
Therefore, the medical community today formally recognizes the value of chiropractic care, and medical doctors routinely acknowledge chiropractic care as a conservative treatment option for patients with lower back pain. Moreover, many medical doctors recognize a chiropractic diagnosis and accept it as the first line of treatment for functional disorders of the entire musculoskeletal system.
The prestigious Texas Back Institute (TBI), the largest freestanding spine specialty clinic in the country, once included only surgeons and other medical doctors among its staff. In the late 1980s, the Institute hired its first doctor of chiropractic. Today, close to half of the Institute’s patients see a chiropractor first when beginning their treatment. The National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and the successful Complementary and Alternative Medicine Center at the National Institutes of Health have established chiropractic internship programs.
