Do you know what October is? In North Carolina October is Chiropractic Month. Governor Pat McCrory signed a proclamation that October is Chiropractic month.
In his proclamation Governor McCrory gave many statements raving about the importance of chiropractic in the health care system and the expertise of chiropractors. He stated:
“Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) are physician level providers who focus on the whole person in their conservative approach to heath care, and have particular expertise in the prevention, care and rehabilitation of neuromusculoskeletal injuries and conditions; and
Whereas, Doctors of Chiropractic are educated in nationally accredited, four-year doctoral graduate school programs through a curriculum that includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical internship, with the average DC program equivalent in classroom hours to allopathic and osteopathic medical schools; and
Whereas, Doctors of Chiropractic are recognized worldwide for their pain-relieving, health enhancing and injury-prevention services;”
This statement very clearly sums up the value of chiropractic for everyone. We treat patients of all ages from new-borns, children, teenagers, adults, and elderly patients. Our goal is to treat the whole person to find the true cause of their issues and to help them reach their optimum health without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is great at relieving pain and preventing future injuries.
He also touched on our education. Many people do not realize it but chiropractors are required to have a 4 year degree and then attend 4 years of chiropractic school. While in chiropractic school we take many classes similar to that of medical and osteopathic schools. The major difference in education is that while the allopathic curriculum teaches pharmacology, the chiropractic curriculum teaches the skill and art of adjusting the spine.
