Chiropractic Myth #5: “Chiropractors Aren’t Real Doctors”

Well, actually, they are.  

  • Chiropractors are Doctors of Chiropractic, (DC); NOT Medical Doctors, (MD).
  • Both have received a doctorial degree from a government accredited medical or chiropractic school.  
  • Both have completed at least 7 years of education.

In medical school, students are educated in how to administer appropriate medications; whereas in chiropractic school the focus is on the chiropractic spinal adjustment and other holistic options for healing the body.

Chiropractors and medical doctors have very different philosophies on health and healing.  

Medical doctors focus on disease and germs, studying the blood other bodily fluids. They use medications and/or surgical procedures to treat symptoms.

Chiropractors focus on treating the whole person by adjusting their spine, to reduce their symptoms. This improves the nervous system integrity and function and restores overall body healing and health.  

Both are necessary for optimal health, but for different reasons.  

  • If you have a broken bone or are bleeding heavily, a medical doctor is the right doctor for you.
  • If you have pain, muscle weakness, numbness or other musculoskeletal issues in your body, a chiropractor is the right doctor for you.
