How does Chiropractic Compare?

A lot of people ask how chiropractic education compares to medical education. Since both work with the human body there is much similarity in their studies, but there are important differences as well.
 
As with any school of advanced learning, pre-requisites, that is subjects required before admission, are needed for chiropractic college. Entrance into a chiropractic college requires at least four years of college undergraduate work (Bachelors Degree) with credits in biology, chemistry and other “pre-med” subjects.
 
In addition to classroom work, training includes an internship period where student chiropractors take care of patients under the supervision of chiropractic doctors, and an internship period where students may assist field chiropractors in their offices. The majority of the school work, however, is done in the classroom and the laboratories.
 
After graduation the new chiropractor must pass the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners 4 part Exam. Upon completion, Licensure & Jurisprudence exams for the state are required along with any other state requirements. In order to retain the license to practice chiropractic, a chiropractor is required to attend 40+ continuing education classes per licensure period for each state that they practice in.


The PFC Difference

Like we mentioned earlier we expect ONLY THE BEST for our patients within our clinic. That means that ALL of the providers within our family have had additional training and are CERTIFIED in Pediatrics from the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP). That means they have taken a minimum of 200 hours of post-graduate training in the area of family wellness, including specialty studies and clinical competence for infants, children and the care in pregnancy and are CERTIFIED in the Webster Technique. 
 
We just wanted you to know that we want ONLY THE BEST for our family. And we strive to continually know more to give you more!
