Significant Information: Chiropractors
- Chiropractors must be licensed, requiring 2 to 4 years of undergraduate education, completion of a 4-year chiropractic college course, and passing scores on national and State examinations.
- Employment is expected to increase faster than average as a result of research and changing attitudes about alternative healthcare practices.
- Job prospects should be good; establishing a new practice will be easiest in areas with a low concentration of chiropractors.
- As with other types of independent practice, earnings for chiropractors are relatively low in the beginning, but increase as the practice grows.
