Why Dr. Rob Isn't a "Real Doctor" (and why he's okay with it!)

So are Chiropractors real doctors? What’s the difference anyway?

 

This week Dr. Rob shares a funny story about his daughter and why she thought he wasn’t a ‘real doctor’.

 

 

Like Dr. Rob’s daughter, lots of people have different ideas of what makes a ‘real’ doctor whether it’s a stethoscope, a PhD, a medical degree, or a degree in chiropractic

 

Most individuals with a Dr. in front of their name have 8 or more years of education and are experts in their field. Chiropractors are not the only health profession outside of medicine to earn the Dr. title. Think of dentists, psychologists, optometrists, and veterinarians, they’re all doctors with very specific skills.

 

So what about chiropractors? Chiropractors typically have 8 years of post-secondary education including an undergraduate degree and 4 years of chiropractic college where they learn subjects like anatomy, biology, chemistry, pathology, diagnosis, and more. Some even have stethoscopes!

 

When a chiropractor graduates they are considered experts in the disorders of the spine, nerves, joints, muscles, and ligaments.

 

Here at PRICE our practitioners and chiropractors focus on treating your musculoskeletal problem as well as focusing on you as a whole!

To quote the great Thomas Edison:

“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.  “

We challenge you to make ONE change this spring and summer to take better care of yourself! Dr. Rob is pledging to get one extra hour of sleep every day. Let us know what change you’re going to make!
