Chiropractic as a career

Chiropractic seeks whole-person care and relies on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractors specialise in providing specific adjustments to the spine to correct abnormal function so that the body is able to express its fullest potential. Chiropractors are also trained to recognise conditions that may require concurrent or referred care to other health care providers.

24% of patients see their chiropractic practitioner for maintenance care or general wellbeing.
97% of patients believe that chiropractic care supports general health.
63.7% of patients reported that they were more interested in improving their health than simply removing symptoms.
Two-thirds of chiropractors agree with traditional chiropractic values.
