There’s a lot more to being a chiropractor than just cracking bones! They figure out exactly what treatment their client needs by analyzing their medical history, catering each session to their client, and ordering x-rays. They use their hands to heal and relieve pain. Chiropractors are healers that are dedicated to helping others recover or feel better. Chiropractors must be observant, detail-oriented, and critical thinkers. They must also have strong interpersonal skills and empathy for others. Their responsibilities include assessing clients medical condition and history, conduct tests analyzing client x-rays or posture etc, and identifying health problems. They also provide physical therapy to help correct health issues, as well as advising patients on how to help correct issues outside of therapy. Chiropractors are required to complete a Doctor of Chiropractor (D.C.) Degree in order to be able to practice. Job growth is projected at 7% for chiropractors between 2018 and 2028.
