Chiropractic is a health care discipline and profession that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system.
Chiropractors must earn a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree and a state license. Doctor of Chiropractic programs typically take 4 years to complete and require at least 3 years of undergraduate college education for admission. http://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/chiropractors.htm#tab-4
Chiropractors typically work in office settings that are clean and comfortable. They may be on their feet for long periods when examining and caring for patients. Chiropractors work full time.
