Common Doctor of Chiropractic Prerequisites
planetc1.com-news@11:31 am PST
What courses do I have to take in order to be accepted into the chiropractor program? Can I get my pre-chiropractic education at my local community college? I've already taken biology, organic chemistry, two social science courses and a psychology class, what else is required to get into chiropractic school? I already have a Masters degree in exercise physiology, can I start chiropractic training right away, or will I require other coursework? These are the types of questions I receive from patients, student e-mails, and other people I meet thinking about a career in chiropractic.

I don't recall liking history class when in middle school, but I find my love for studying all sorts of historical events, has grown over the years.

End of Days For Chiropractic Profession?
planetc1.com-news@11:32 pm PST
Is it time for chiropractors to begin marketing themselves as manual therapists in order to fit in to some medical model? Is the profession predominantly in favor of peddling muscle relaxers and other pharmaceuticals while performing colonics and doing foot baths? Have the colleges gotten so far out of touch with the rest of the industry that churning out student failures has become the primary business model? The doom and gloom train has left the station but someone forgot to send me a ticket.
