Job Description

Chiropractors are alternative health practitioners who evaluate, diagnose and perform a series of manual adjustments to the spine, or other articulations of the body, to correct the musculoskeletal system and treat health problems associated with the muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems. In the regular course of business, chiropractors obtain record and maintain patients’ medical histories. As part of the diagnosis process, they analyse x-rays to locate the sources of patients’ difficulties and to rule out fractures or diseases as sources of problems.

Often, chiropractors counsel and advice patients about nutrition, exercise, stress management, and recommended courses of treatment. Chiropractors refer patients to appropriate health practitioners when necessary, such as when patients require drugs, psychiatric treatment, or surgery. Most chiropractors enter private practice, either on their own or in an established group of chiropractors or at a health clinic. But basically they work in offices with an examination and treatment room. Chiropractors must have excellent manual dexterity. They also must be observant, good in interpersonal skills, and the empathy required for interactions with patients.
