Education differences of Medical Doctor (MD) vs. Chiropractic Doctor (DC)
The educational requirements for chiropractic doctors are among the most rigorous of all healthcare professionals. Our doctors were required to pass a series of four national board exams and also be licensed in North Carolina. Both an MD and DC attend school for eight years. The first six years of medical school are alike for both professions. Then during the last two years MD learns about drugs and medication, while the chiropractor receives in-depth training in reading x-rays (far more than just broken bones). Why did the ER doctor say I was fine and I’m still in pain?
