Are you interested in becoming a chiropractor? First you must obtain the necessary degree, a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.). Many people think that chiropractors only fix back pain, and while that is a treatment they often provide, chiropractors are trained to treat a variety of issues through chiropractic methods.
Chiropractors do not obtain an M.D. or D.O. degree. They don't go to a medical school, but attend chiropractic school after a minimum of about two years of undergraduate coursework. However, many chiropractors do complete a bachelor's degree prior to entering chiropractic school.
