Training Required By A Chiropractor

What training do Chiropractors require?

Chiropractors receive a minimum of 7 years post-secondary education, including at least 4500 hours of specialized training during four years full-time study at an accredited Chiropractic program.


There are two Canadian institutions that grant a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC)

degree; the University of Quebec at Trois -Rivières and Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto.


In addition, several Canadian universities maintain a Chiropractic Research

chair. Chiropractors receive extensive training in manual therapy of the spine, the extremity joints and their related soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, fascia, etc.). Chiropractors study advanced courses in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, orthopaedics, radiology and differential diagnosis.


Chiropractors are regulated primary care professionals, and they are one of only five classes of health care professionals in Ontario that are able to use the title Doctor, with its accompanying rights and obligations.
