Chiropractors

chiropractors vs doctors testIt’s thought by some that chiropractors are not on par with medical doctors and that our education is not comparable.

Here’s some intriguing information across I came when researching the whole “chiropractors vs doctors” information I found It was a test between medical students and chiropractic students that can add to the conversation of chiropractors vs doctors…

Here are the results from a basic test designed by medical orthopedic residency professors to test the knowledge of medical residents vs. chiropractic students. In the orthopedic test 82% of medical school graduates failed the examination. [1]

However, four years later the test was simplified and made easier, but once again, 78% of the medical resident examinees failed to demonstrate basic clinical competency in musculoskeletal medicine. [2]

When this test was given to  chiropractic students who were in their final quarter of clinic, 70% of them passed the same exam! [3]

      I really mean that when I say the best Denver chiropractor is the one who can take care of your individual needs, Sometimes it’s financial, sometimes driving and distance, sometimes the best chiropractor is one who has procedures that you need and want. Personality, bedside manner, it takes all kinds. I general, Colorado chiropractors have a real fervor and passion for what they do. I love the healthiness (that’s a new word) of this state.
