Absolutely. Almost every state has licensing requirements to practice within the field. All of our chiropractors have obtained a professional degree within the field of medicine as required to practice. The classroom instruction provided at chiropractic colleges and medical colleges is largely the same in terms of content. Accredited chiropractic programs in the United States require that incoming students complete at least 90 hours of undergraduate college credit with a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Most require a bachelor’s degree. Chiropractic schools in the U.S. are accredited through the Council on Chiropractic Education, which requires a mixed (nontraditional) chiropractic education that discards most of classic (“straight”) chiropractic’s more controversial tenets. Most states require graduates to pass board examinations in order to practice within their jurisdiction, and generally also require yearly continuing education classes.
