By hands on, we mean hands on. Identifying the cause of pain. Alleviating stress. Pursuing a more perfect diagnosis and treatment.
Americans spend more than $20 billion a year to treat back and neck pain, most of it on surgery or drugs. Chiropractic gets to the root cause of the problem— and brings a person to his or her perfect form.
Joy in healing. It’s seeing what once was a burden of pain and discomfort give way to relief and effortless movement. You know them as patients, and people. A partnership — formed in trust — that sustains better health and happier lives.
It’s a journey —10 trimesters (three years and four months) of rigorous coursework and real-world clinical experience. Along the way, you earn the honor of wearing a white coat — marking a level of skill (diagnostic and clinical) that makes you ready to work with real patients. Always pursuing perfection.
Before you treat, you learn. Your study will include chemistry, neuroscience, anatomy, nutrition, and radiology. You will work with the latest technology in the classroom, laboratory and clinic. An approach formed over decades.
Graduate prepared to work alongside physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other healthcare professionals to meet the needs of a patient — with grace. You can intern in a range of clinical settings, including Veterans Health Administration hospitals. A perfect training ground.
