Hi, My name is Dr. Karen Hannah with Touch of Wellness Chiropractic.
It’s not too uncommon for someone to wonder about the amount of schooling a chiropractor has.
How much is it?
While I may not wear a stethoscope to announce my practice, I am trained in a few areas you may not expect.
As chiropractors, we are required to be a primary healthcare physician, which means we need to have all the background medical knowledge to be able to make sure that you’re in the right place, especially when it comes to our office.
In the general medical world, they are all trained in pharmacology or to do surgery, we are trained to help people without those tools.
So there’s a big difference between the two when it comes to how we care for you, our patient.
But when it comes to background education, the rigorous classes are all just about the same.
I likely spent more time in an anatomy lab than anyone you know.
So my job as your chiropractor is to keep you away from needing those medical world tools like prescriptions or surgeries and to make sure you’re taking the best possible care of your body so you’re feeling like you’re living your life as close to 100% as possible.
