Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Looking for a Chiropractor

One question that many people seem to have about chiropractors concerns the amount of schooling required in order to practice. It wasn’t too long ago that some people referred to chiropractic as “quackery” or at best an incomplete healing discipline. Times have changed and today people from all walks of life utilize chiropractic, but the educational requirements are still a source of mystery to many. The truth is, chiropractors in Warwick have extensive schooling that enables them to treat a wide range of health issues effectively and safely.

Extensive Educational Requirements

In order to become a chiropractor, you are required to meet some of the most demanding educational requirements of any health care profession. Most chiropractors have already taken close to four years of pre-med undergraduate courses before they even apply to chiropractic college. This includes biology, physics, psychology, inorganic and organic chemistry and all of the associated lab work.

If you are accepted into an accredited chiropractic college, then the really demanding work begins. You’ll work through four to five academic years, which includes a lot of time learning the hands-on adjusting techniques that will become a big part of your practice. A chiropractor has no room for error when recommending a treatment path and then adjusting a patient’s spine, so the training must be deep and detailed.

The complete educational curriculum for chiropractors in Warwick includes minimum classroom, laboratory and clinical experience of 4,200 hours. The accrediting agency that approves the courses is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, which has been true for over 25 years. Chiropractors must be able to assess a specific health condition, provide appropriate advice and treatment, and refer patients to other health care professionals when necessary.

Chiropractors have classroom requirements equal to or greater than traditional medical professionals.  This in-depth training allows doctors of chiropractic to be considered primary care physicians.  Primary care physicians are considered point of entry physicians and do not require a referral.
