Chiropractors are typically known for the technique of spinal manipulation, however, there is much more to the art and science of chiropractic than ‘cracking’ joints. The education of a chiropractor is similar in total classroom hours to that of a medical doctor. An average of 4,822 hours is required in chiropractic schools, compared with 4,667 hours in medical schools.
Many, many studies have been performed on chiropractic and have compared it to physical therapy, surgery, medications and a host of other treatments. There is an overwhelming body of research that supports the notion that chiropractic is superior to other options in both effectiveness and patient satisfaction.

"Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using, very extensively, chiropractors in order to stay healthy and fit. Whenever I had a little problem with my body, I always ran to one of my dear friends [Franco Columbo,D.C.], he was always right there with the adjustments. This is how I found out the best way of going, is to use chiropractors, not only after injuries , but also before injury."
