Anyone considering becoming a Chiropractor — or currently attending chiropractic college — should GO READ THIS ENTIRE LINK IMMEDIATELY.
It contains facts (with links to proof) about how chiropractic colleges mislead students and misrepresent the career.
This single post contains more information than I could ever post here. Read it CAREFULLY and follow all links before even THINKING ABOUT becoming a chiropractor.
Anyone who knows the complete facts about this “profession” would NEVER get involved and take out the massive student loans required to become a chiropractor. Chiropractic fails on every level as a career choice: it’s a low income, unscientific, unethical profession with a low public trust that is DYING quickly.

Warning: Don’t get your neck cracked by a chiropractor !!!
An Alberta woman, paralyzed after her neck was manipulated by a chiropractor, has launched the biggest-ever class action suit against chiropractic in Canada.The suit, filed yesterday in Edmonton, is asking for more than a half billion dollars in damages not only for the victim, Sandy Nette and her husband, David, but for an entire class – anyone in Alberta treated or harmed by chiropractors who deliver “inappropriate and non-beneficial adjustments.”
The unprecedented lawsuit is groundbreaking because it is the first time lawyers have challenged the veracity of the fundamental underpinnings of chiropractic in a court of law in Canada. If successful, chiropractors in Alberta would have to repay a decade’s worth of fees – about $400 million – to all patients of chiropractors who were injured by or received what the suit calls, “inappropriate and non-beneficial adjustments”.
Alberta pays out about $40 million a year in chiropractic billings.
Philip Tinkler, one of the lead lawyers on the class action suit, explained that most victims of chiropractic injury either lack the knowledge or resources to pursue a lawsuit.
