Chiropractic History and Chiropractor Faces

Today we are celebrating nine years of delivering Chiropractic News online. These past few days I was taking a look at our news image archives and I saw the many faces of chiropractors that have had a part in making planet chiropractic a successful destination on the Internet. Not that many web sites can tout nine years of continuous original content development, and there’s no way planet chiropractic would’ve done this without the support received by thousands of chiropractors, chiropractic students, and advocates of chiropracticly based lifestyles. We’d like to thank everyone who has ever submitted an article (especially those that have written a significant amount of content), forwarded chiropractic news stories, and taken an active role helping us become the success we are today. Many blessings to you!

Chiropractic 101: An Aspiring Chiropractor

My name is Melissa, and this fall I will be a junior at the University of Southern California. I am writing you this email because I am interested in being a chiropractor. I have done some research online and while looking around, I found your website (ADIOLA). Seeing your ambition, personality, dedication, and love of your career and life is very inspiring. I was wondering, since I am still trying to figure things out about this career, if you would be willing to give me some advice and your general opinion about this field of work. What was it that got you interested in being a chiropractor? What kind of schooling did you have to go though? What would you say are the pros and cons of your career? I do have many more questions, but if there is any other information that you would be willing to share, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my email. I look forward to hearing from you.
