Chiropractic Education

Education - Doctor of Chiropractic 

Palmer College of Chiropractic

You will be happy to know the education your chiropractor received was very extensive and demanding. Chiropractic students undergo thorough teachings in the structure and function of the human body, how diseases occur, and how to prevent, correct, and maintain proper health. Initially chiropractors must complete a 4-year undergraduate degree. Emphasis is placed on the core sciences, including general and organic chemistry, biology, physics, anatomy, and physiology. Palmer College of Chiropractic is the fountainhead and trusted leader in chiropractic education. 

Once undergraduate requirements have been met a rigorous chiropractic program begins, similar to that of medical school. Chiropractic college is a 5-year program that can be completed in around three and a half years when going to school all year round. Course requirements include extensive anatomy and physiology classes, neurology, immunology, toxicology, pathology, radiology, biomechanics, spinal and extremity adjusting techniques, along with a variety of other health sensitive subjects. For a detailed curriculum you can visit the Palmer College of Chiropractic website at 

After graduation, a chiropractic license is granted by the Wisconsin Chiropractic Examining Board, from the Department of Safety and Professional Services. Requirements for licensure by the state of Wisconsin require a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college/university, active CPR certification, Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree from a board-approved chiropractic college, and successful completion of National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (parts I, II, III, and IV). Wisconsin has set a high standard for chiropractors in the state and requires some of the highest board scores nationwide. Included in this standard is the completion of 40 hours of continuing education (CE) every two years to maintain licensure.  The doctors at Boots Chiropractic & Wellness Center, S.C. routinely exceed any mandatory CE requirements to ensure knowledge of latest chiropractic techniques and nutritional therapies.

  • "I met Dr. Bill playing basketball one night when I had a strange nervous system injury occur. From the beginning, Dr. Bill graciously guided me through the investigative process, providing a wealth of information and guidance. As a almost 30-year old, I was completely unfamiliar with chiropractic services and Dr. Bill took the time to explain what and why he was doing a certain procedure. As we dug deeper, my symptoms warranted outside consultants, which Dr. Bill again graciously guided me to and through those processes. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bill to a friend."

I recently moved from Kimberly to Florida to help my in-laws had have gone to 7 chiropractors in Florida. None compare with Boots. If you live in Wisconsin, be thankful you have access to the best -- Boots Chiropractors!!"

  • "Can't thank Dr. Jim and Dr. Bill enough for the care I have been given over the years. I've been to other chiropractors but this is the best care I have received anywhere. Dr. Matt is a welcome addition to the team. Everyone is caring and the doctors dig deep to find the best way to heal your health problem. Very accommodating to the hours you work as well so you don't have to wait days in pain to get help. Thank you all for your stellar care."
