Upper cervical chiropractors in Stratford Have Extensive Schooling

Your Stratford chiropractor has been through an incredible amount of training. Don’t be shy to ask them where they schooled and what it was like.

Upper cervical chiropractors have all been through stringent and labor-intensive education so they bring you the best care possible. It’s hard to get into upper cervical chiropractic school and it’s even harder to graduate. Upper cervical chiropractic credentials are among the toughest to attain of any of the health care professions.

Any applicant at a upper cervical chiropractic college has already received up to four years of pre-medical undergraduate college education under their belt. Courses include:

  • Biology
  • Inorganic and organic chemistry
  • Physics
  • Psychology

All this rigorous training and education in the healing sciences is very similar to that of a general medical doctor. In fact, in anatomy, physiology, and rehabilitation upper cervical chiropractors surpass the knowledge of most general practitioners.

In the United States and Canada 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory, and clinical experience is the norm. It’s a long process, but working with things as delicate and complex as the spine and pain management is a lifelong learning experience.

Upper cervical chiropractors will also typically have studied:

Advanced anatomy; biochemistry; physiology; microbiology; pathology; first aid and emergency procedures; public health; physical, clinical and laboratory diagnosis; gynecology; obstetrics; pediatrics; geriatrics; dermatology; research methods and procedures; professional practice ethics; otolaryngology; diagnostic imaging procedures; psychology; nutrition/dietetics; biomechanics; orthopedics; physiological therapeutics.
