Consumer demand for alternative health care including Chiropractic is expanding in the United States. The field is expected to grow faster than average through the year 2014. A growth rate of 18 to 26 percent annual increase for Chiropractors is projected.
Chiropractors emphasize the importance of healthy lifestyles and do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery. This appeals to many health-conscious Americans and is of growing importance in the case of children diagnosed with autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder where treatment programs have been known to offer effective relief.

Chiropractors enjoy such additional benefits as self-employment, working in a clean environment, and a work schedule that permits a life beyond the job. Plus, many enjoy excellent financial rewards. One list of important jobs places Chiropractic in the top 25 good-paying jobs in America.
The perfect way for a young person to find our more about the field and career options would be to ask a Chiropractor. Members of this profession are usually very willing to talk about their own background and education. This personal information can be of great help to a youngster in making a valuable career decision.
