CHIROPRACTIC IS A PHILOSOPHY , A SCIENCE AND AN ART.
A chiropractor is a health care professional. He / She is concern with the wellness of the individual. A chiropractor is not a medical doctor and does not practices the profession of medicine. A chiropractor is not a therapist and does not practice the profession of therapy. A chiropractor is a health care provider that uses no ointments, tablets, injections, drugs, treatments or surgery. The chiropractor uses philosophy, science and art to restore health to a person.

The chiropractor studies the science of what causes VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION
The chiropractor practices the art of removing VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION
Here is a summary of what is a chiropractor
Before being accepted to any of the chiropractic colleges in Australia, Canada, England, France, Japan and the United States a chiropractor(when a student) must complete at least two years of prerequisites. These two years include training in the basic sciences, such as maths, biology, chemistry, physics and etc.
Chiropractic college is another four years of specialize training. The variety of subjects is often more diverse than the average person expects to see. Courses include psychology, medical terminology, accounting, differences in other health care providers. In histology, microbiology, parasitology, the chiropractor(when a student) spends time in the laboratory over a microscope observing the different types of cells that make up the body. The chiropractor(when a student) learns that bacteria and viruses are both harmful and beneficial to man and the environment. The chiropractic student studies how the smallest of life forms can take advantage of a person when those natural healing powers are hampered.
The chiropractor receives more training in anatomy and physiology than any other health care practitioner. Detailed courses cover the 206 bones of the skeleton and the different types of joints that articulate them, the system of muscles throughout the body and which nerves innervate them and the actions and capabilities of each. Other anatomy courses concentrate on the blood vessels, organs and glands. Embryology is an important course for the chiropractor, learning the development of the human during embryonic phases. Studying the origin of two cells(egg and sperm) and the development of the nervous system within the embryo, within the fetus and within the newborn. There are several studies into the nervous system, from conception through to adult life.
Physiology classes teach the workings of the body’s many systems, such as how the human eye sees, how the human ear detects sound, how the lungs take in oxygen and rids carbon dioxide, how the never-ending heart keeps blood circulation at a regular flow and how a muscle contracts and relaxes.
Courses in pathology and diagnosis familiarize the chiropractic student with disease processes. Other courses provide the opportunity to begin patient care and management in a classroom atmosphere. Public Health and nutrition classes cover digestion, the processing of foods and the value of different foods. These courses inform the student with specifics on vitamins, industrial food processing and social standards of public health care. Some chiropractic colleges offer a Bachelor Science Degree, in addition to a Doctorate of Chiropractic when attending chiropractic school.
The Science and Art of vertebral adjustment are the chiropractor’s specialty, So the student is trained in several adjusting techniques. Types of adjustments are taught by lecture and by labs where determining spinal problems and their correction are practiced and tested.
Magnetic resonance is the study of atoms, molecules or nuclei responding to magnetic fields, radio waves or other forms of energy. MRI(magnetic resonance imaging) classes teach the student about the human tissue. Reontgenology and radiology are the study of x-ray, and is another field a chiropractic student must take in order to graduate.
Internship is required in addition to classroom study. Licensed doctors supervise and consult with students clinicians on outpatient care. This hands-on clinical experience is most valuable in applying the knowledge attained academically. The student of chiropractic spends between 35 and 40 hours a week in classroom and attends chiropractic school for weeks and months during the scholastic year.
Finally, but by no means of least importance, are the chiropractic philosophy courses, which include the history and development since D.D. Palmer delivered the first adjustment in 1895. These courses promote student awareness of the body’s innate intelligence that keeps us in tune with our environment and of the detriments of spinal mis-alignment. Pressure on important parts of the nerve within the nervous system affect one’s fitness, health and mental outlook. A doctor of chiropractic relieves these subluxation and returns to the body the natural flow of neural function. This is a big responsibility and in these courses students develop their way of thinking about drugless health care and the power that comes from within the body to protect and defend itself against sickness. Today’s chiropractor is well trained and highly educated in the maintenance of good health.
