What kinds of jobs do chiropractors have?

Consumers increasingly demand alternative healthcare. Chiropractic care appeals to many because chiropractors use alternative, noninvasive methods. Sherman trains people to be independent entrepreneurs as doctors of chiropractic. Job prospects for new chiropractors are expected to be good, especially for those who enter a multi-disciplined practice, consisting of, for example, a chiropractor, physical therapist, and medical doctor. The patient can be referred to an in-house specialist if needed.

Listing of Chiropractic Jobs, Offices and Equipment for Sale, and Employment Opportunities is kept on the Sherman Website to help students and alumni.

Many chiropractors start out as associates in established practices, while others open their own solo practice. Some chiropractors work with athletic teams, either part-time or full time. Some work from a stationary office, others travel. Many kinds of chiropractic jobs are available or can be created with entrepreneurship.

Chiropractors who specialize in pediatric care will be in demand as chiropractic spinal treatment is very gentle, and children enjoy subsequent visits. The rapidly expanding older population, with its increased likelihood of mechanical and structural problems, also will increase demand for chiropractors.
