Chiropractor Makes Headway on Best Jobs List

Every chiropractor can attest to the benefits of his or her job. Helping people, changing lives, having the opportunity for growth and independence, and financial success are all factors that contribute to this great profession. An article was recently published in The Wall Street Journal that listed 200 of the best careers. To determine these, researchers looked at the following:

            - hiring outlook

            - stress level

            - work environment

            - physical requirements

            - income

After evaluating all of these things, chiropractic came in high at number 11, climbing 8 spots just since 2012. In addition to this article, The Wall Street Journal also quoted a United States Department of Labor report from 2012 that called for “28 percent more chiropractors by 2020.” Chiropractic colleges are experiencing higher enrollment rates as students see the potential in the field. In addition, people are taking notice of chiropractic because it is:

            - non-invasive

            - affordable

            - narcotic/medication free

            - effective and  safe

The world of chiropractic care focuses on fixing the root issue (spinal misalignment), not on covering it up with drugs or potentially damaging tissue with surgery. For this reason, the profession is growing. Current chiropractors are already privy to just how great their jobs are, because they help patients achieve pain- free lives on a daily basis.

The growth of chiropractic care, and its recognition as a valued profession are all good signs for the industry – one that, as many alternative medicine therapies do, battles skeptics and non-believers. However, letting the evidence speak for itself has allowed chiropractors to realize continued success in changing lives, while also focusing on bettering their practices, and now we can see just how much of an impact this is having.
