            Chiropractic by the Numbers

            According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

            • The greatest percentage of chiropractors work in solo or group practice, with just over a third being self-employed.

            • Chiropractors work in hospital settings, on college or university faculty or researchers, in the Veteran’s Administration and the Department of Defense.


            According to a National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Survey:

            • The typical chiropractor spends between 30-40 hours per week involved in practice.

            • More than half of the respondents have been in practice at least 15 years with a significant amount of job satisfaction.

            • The ratio of men to women in practice is about 4:1, but the number of women in the profession has been growing significantly.

            • In the average week, chiropractors typically treat patients with mainly musculoskeletal conditions. Most commonly, this involves various diagnoses of low back and neck pain, but also includes a variety of neurological problems, joint problems (such as osteoarthritis) and muscular problems (such as strain).

            • Chiropractors also treat patients with various systemic problems such as hypertension or diabetes.

            • Many chiropractors specialize, tailoring their practice toward managing pediatric or obstetric patients, or focusing on sports or the management of internal disorders.

            • Many chiropractors are now using electronic health records to do so; properly documenting patient records may take up to 25% of the chiropractor’s daily time.
