That depends on your condition. The length of time you have had the problem, your age and the degree of your disability all affect the length of your treatment. Your Doctor of Chiropractic should be able to give you an estimate of the extent of relief you should receive from the recommended treatment and how long you can expect it to last.

Today’s graduating Doctors of Chiropractic have studied and trained in a post-secondary college or university for at least seven academic years. Just like medical students, they must first complete undergraduate study before applying for admission to a chiropractic college.
Becoming a chiropractor is a demanding and highly rewarding path that includes a minimum of 4,500 hours of intense academic study including classroom learning, clinical science and internship training. During the course of their training, he/she will have studied the following three areas:

  • Basic sciences including: anatomy, physiology, pathology (the study of diseases), biochemistry, clinical sciences, X-ray interpretation, and differential diagnosis.
  • Training in the philosophy and practice of chiropractic.
  • Clinical internship with emphasis on hands-on practice.

Your chiropractor is a primary contact (portal of entry) provider just like your family physician, optometrist or dentist. You do not need a referral from your medical doctor to see a chiropractor.
