medicine careersIn this medicine career, you will address neuromusculoskeletal problems in patients by treatment through spinal adjustments and massage. But it’s more than just cracking backs — chiropractors must have a vast knowledge of nerves, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons in order to recommend treatments and lifestyle changes that will heal patients.

Schools such as Boise State University, Dodge City Community College, and Drury University offer pre-chiropractic studies, where you can begin your training and ensure this is the right path for you. Once you earn your doctorate degree, you can expect to earn a median salary of $64,440 while working as part of a chiropractic office or opening your own.
