Welcome to Jeff Tirsch Chiropractic

Doctors of chiropractic undergo a 4-year degree program, and most states now require an undergraduate bachelor's degree in science prior to admission to chiropractic university. In chiropractic universities, the first 2 years are focused on basic sciences coursework, after which the training focuses on diagnosis related courses (pathology, pathophysiology, etc.) and manual medicine or manipulation (use of hands) as an alternative to drugs or surgery.
Some chiropractors also pursue post-graduate diplomat programs in various specialties, such as orthopedics, sports medicine, rehabilitation, neurology and other disciplines.
Chiropractors need to be licensed to practice in their state, and need to have completed the National Board examinations. In addition to Part 1 and Part 2, Part 3 of the National Boards is necessary if the chiropractor plans to use physiological therapeutics in practice. Part 4 of the National Boards tests three practical skill areas, including diagnostic imaging, chiropractic technique and case management. In some states, Part 4 may be utilized in place of a state-specific practical examination.
