Chiropractors take a natural approach to health. Their education places special emphasis on anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, bio-mechanics, X-ray, spinal adjusting techniques and related subjects. This demanding curriculum prepares Chiropractors to distinguish problems that can be treated without drugs or surgery from those that may be symptoms of a condition requiring medical intervention.
Before graduation, there is a closely supervised internship at the Chiropractic College Clinic, where the trainee Chiropractor treats patients. This gives valuable hands-on experience.
After graduation there is a post graduation training scheme of one year where you work under the supervision of a designated Chiropractor. This further solidifies your chiropractic training.
All UK Chiropractors complete a minimum of 30 hours of post-graduate education on an annual basis. This can, amongst other things consist of attending seminars, scientific symposia, and reading professional journals to keep up with the latest research.
