What chiropractic schools are in Los Angeles? That is a question patients in my office frequently ask. They also want to know where I went to chiropractic school, how much it costs, and how long will it take to graduate. For those that are truly interested, I share as much information as I can to help them find a chiropractic school that is right for them. There are numerous factors to consider when choosing a chiropractic school, I’ve covered that in several previous posts, and I will share several links below. First I want to address the question of Los Angeles and chiropractic schools, let’s begin with a bit of local chiropractic history.

Parker University played host to the 2011 Talk the TIC Finals on July 6, 2011. Talk the TIC is a worldwide annual chiropractic health talk competition between chiropractic students effectively delivering a chiropractic message to others. The purpose is to refine the skill of communicating the principle, science, and knowledge of chiropractic in order to share it with the public. It allows students to practice overcoming their fear of public speaking as well as perfect their explanation of what chiropractic is and what the benefits of chiropractic care are to a lay audience.
By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I’ve written before about historic chiropractic schools (like Manhattan Chiropractic College), places that existed as long…
The history of chiropractic-past feels to be fading away as we move more into our digital world. Many practitioners and chiropractic-students no longer have access to historical information, as our analog items deteriorate, and slowly fade into nonexistence. Personally, I find historical archives fascinating, whether they be of a chiropractic nature or not. I don’t recall liking history class when in middle school, but I find my love for studying all sorts of historical events, has grown over the years.
Is it time for chiropractors to begin marketing themselves as manual therapists in order to fit in to some medical model? Is the profession predominantly in favor of peddling muscle relaxers and other pharmaceuticals while performing colonics and doing foot baths? Have the colleges gotten so far out of touch with the rest of the industry that churning out student failures has become the primary business model? The doom and gloom train has left the station but someone forgot to send me a ticket.
The end of a long history in chiropractic is coming to Los Angeles, as the Cleveland Chiropractic College system has announced today, its decision to close the Cleveland Chiropractic College Los Angeles campus in August 2011. The family owned chiropractic school, operated in the Los Angeles area for the past 60 years, after Carl Cleveland purchased Ratledge College of Chiropractic in the 1950s. According to reports from the college, the Kansas City campus will not be affected by the closure taking place in Los Angeles.
