Patients today increasingly demand access to complementary/alternative health care, with 62 percent of adults in the United States using such services, according to the National Institutes of Health. It is not surprising, then, that the chiropractic profession is expected to grow 20 percent between 2008 and 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-2011 Edition.

The list of career directions you can take within the profession is broad ranging:

  • Solo practitioner
  • Chiropractic group practitioner
  • Educator
  • Researcher
  • Fitness facility chiropractor
  • Sports team chiropractor
  • Hospital staff
  • Multi-specialty group practitioner
  • Administrator

You can also specialize in an area such as orthopedic or pediatric chiropractic, or continuing your education to earn a master of science in clinical research. Whichever direction you choose, Palmer College can take you there.
