What education is need for chiropractors?
Chiropractors undergo many years of education in order to get licensed in their respective states. Each state has its own requirements as to the licensure process, but many require the same educational core. This includes special training in anatomy and physiology, neurology and pathology as well as biomechanics and spinal adjustments with x-ray included. These courses of education help chiropractors to assess damage and restore the proper functioning of these areas. A doctorate is required, and it must be a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree.

Can chiropractor adjust other joints in the body other than the spine?
Absolutely! Just like your spine, all joints of the body can become “fixed” or misaligned. When this happens you have the same loss of motion that can cause inflammation, decreased blood supply, and decreased muscle function. Most chiropractors would happily examine and treat fixations of all joints.
Do kids need to see a chiropractor?
Chiropractic care is not only for adults. Children can just as easily have spinal problems such as curvature of the spine that can easily be helped when caught early in life. Children are mostly always playing, and can cause themselves injuries without even knowing it. The adjustments to a child’s spine are highly modified to be useful for children’s small bodies.
