Training Required By A Chiropractor
What training do Chiropractors require?
Chiropractors receive a minimum of 7 years of post-secondary education, including at least 4500 hours of specialized training during four years of full-time study at an accredited Chiropractic program.
Two Canadian institutions 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, orthopedics, radiology and differential diagnosis.
Chiropractors are regulated primary care professionals and one of only five classes of health care professionals in Ontario that can use the title Doctor, with its accompanying rights and obligations.
