Debunking the Myth: Are Chiropractors Real Doctors?

chiropractic-adjusting-equipment-sq-400One of the most common questions circulating on the Internet is, “Are chiropractors real doctors?” The answer is a resounding yes! While chiropractors don’t always don crisp white coats, have stethoscopes around their necks, and carry prescription pads, they are legitimate doctors with considerable education and expertise. Let’s take a closer look at these natural healthcare practitioners:

They Undergo Rigorous Education

Chiropractors undergo extensive education that, in certain aspects, exceeds that of traditional medical doctors. While medical professionals focus on pharmacology and surgical methods, chiropractic education dives deeper into areas like X-ray diagnostics and chiropractic techniques.

For instance, Dr. Chris Quigley’s time at New York Chiropractic College equipped him with various chiropractic methods, emphasizing the body’s natural healing capabilities and optimal functional strategies. He also attained postdoctoral education in MRI spine interpretation. Dr. Kelly Makela, who received chiropractic care since birth, graduated with honors from Life West Chiropractic College. She is passionate about empowering each patient about their body’s natural power to heal.
