A Guide To Doctor Of Chiropractic
Since our inception, we have treated thousands who suffered from spine joint and sports injuries. Our clinical successes in the treatment of spine and orthopedic conditions have propelled our centers to greater heights of prominence in Malaysia and beyond. Our Doctor of Chiropractic has treated royalties, dignitaries, business people, and patients from all walks of life. Consequently, we treated patients from all over the world. Patients have come to us from as far as Africa, Europe, Middle East, China, and India. Those who have sought our help wanted an effective alternative to drugs and surgery. Most noteworthy, in almost all cases we succeeded to surpass their expectations.
For most, the art and science of chiropractic were new. So, the most common question we got from Malaysians, as well as from our foreign patients, has been in regards to the practice of chiropractic and qualifications of a doctor of chiropractic (chiropractor). Hence, these issues have resonated with us, and we have decided to shed some light on this subject for better understanding.
There are approximately 100,000 chiropractors in practice in the world today. Over 70% either practice or have received their education in America. Therefore, we have decided to provide educational and qualification backgrounds as it pertains to those that practice or were educated in the United States.
Who Discovered Chiropractic?
Daniel David Palmer discovered chiropractic and established the first school of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Currently, there are over 40 colleges and universities offering educational programs towards the Doctor of Chiropractic degree, with the vast majority being in North America (approximately 23 institutions of higher learning). Like other healthcare professions, the practice of chiropractic and the educational requirements have become stringent. The most common degree in chiropractic today is the doctorate, Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.).
In the United States, the Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.s) have some of the toughest licensing and educational requirements. As a result, the curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom. In short, the average D.C. program has classroom hours that are equivalent to Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) school curricula.
The U.S. Federal Medical Program and almost all states designate Doctors of Chiropractic as physician-level providers. The essential services that D.C.s provide are also available through the U.S. federal health delivery systems. They include those that are administered through Federal Workers‘ Compensation, Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, U.S. Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, Medicaid and all state workers‘ compensation programs as well. So, Chiropractors and the profession of Chiropractic has thoroughly been proven helpful. In fact, it has been two times more effective than the traditional allopathic models of care.
The Typical Chiropractic Education (The Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the U.S.)
A typical chiropractic college applicant has a four-year degree (Bachelors) before commencing his or her Doctorate in Chiropractic. The requirements get even more demanding after the student has gained acceptance into an accredited chiropractic college. The standard is four or five academic years worth of professional study. Due to the practice of chiropractic having a hands-on nature, as well as the intricate adjusting techniques that need to be learned, clinical training takes up a significant portion of the total study time.
A rigorous education in all of the healing scientists is received by chiropractors; similar to what medical doctors get. So, in areas like public health, nutrition, rehabilitation, physiology, radiology, and anatomy, chiropractors have a more rigorous educational requirement. Chiropractic students, like many other primary health care doctors, spend a great deal of their curriculum time studying clinical subjects that relate to the evaluation of and caring for patients. Typically, professional training includes having to complete a clinical-based program of a minimum of one year that deals with actual patient care. The curriculum in total includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience. An accrediting agency that the U.S. Department of Education recognizes approves the course of the study. This has been true for over 25 years
