In chiropractic school, it was not uncommon for classmates to start to pair off with each other. If you have any kind of Christian background than yes I am talking in the “biblical sense.”  Kidding aside, it does makes sense.  We spent every waking moment either in class, studying together outside of class or imbibing with each other on the weekends to forget the first, two scenarios.  Interestingly enough, I would...
In my recent quest to investigate the ups and downs of practicing chiropractic around the world, it would be a shame to not put Australia on the list.   I know for Americans, the idea of spending a couple of weeks vacationing in Australia would be nothing short of a dream come true.  From the beaches, the food, kangaroos, touring Sydney, I have never heard of a bad trip to Australia (at least among my circle of friends). The...
As I was perusing through the different job opportunities on chirorecruit.com I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the Philippines.  The only experience I ever had was as a kid.  My first stepfather was a marine and he was stationed in southern California. I remember our next door neighbors were another military family and the wife was Filipino.  At the time, this was not so uncommon.  Between my...
In the last blog, the discussion was about how countries around the world view chiropractic. If you currently live in the states, UK, Canada or Australia chiropractic is clearly defined and regulated.  This is not the case in many countries.  I commandeered the legend below from Part 1 of this blog series to catch us all up to speed.  Below the legend describes countries from “a-d” in how chiropractic is viewed...
  Part 1   I think there comes a point in everyone’s life where we are open to the possibility of leaving behind the familiar and ushering in the different aspects of a new country, customs and maybe new language.  Opening your eyes to a unique landscape filled with people who have musculoskeletal complaints common to all humans and unusual afflictions that many of us have only read about in textbooks. ...
I can imagine the horrified looks I would get from my friends, family and patients if I said, “Ciao I’m out of here.” Can you picture yourself sitting on a Mediterranean beach, sipping some amazing wine while not worrying about tan lines?  Nude beach anyone? Joking aside, I know I can. Italy is usually on the list of places to visit, especially for Americans. We hear the stories of picturesque countrysides, beautiful...
The profession is strictly regulated in the UK by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) – an independent regulatory body set up by parliament – and they ensure the safety of patients undergoing treatment. A chiropractor must be registered with the GCC to work in the UK – failure to do so is a criminal offence. Practitioners must also abide by the GCC’s code of practice, hold professional indemnity insurance, and...
A guest blog by : Ian Hutchinson D.C., F.B.C.A, F.C.C, former President of The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) Ian graduated from Palmer College in 1970 meeting chiropractors from many countries where chiropractors had achieved legislative recognition. He was inspired to work with many others from inside and outside chiropractic to achieve licensing (statutory regulation) in the U.K. In 1982, whilst President of the BCA,...
The US Job Market for Chiropractors The profession of Chiropractic is well established across the US with 75,000 registered and working across all of the states. Whilst each state has a dedicated chiropractic association that advertises job vacancies on their classified pages, job sites such as Chiro Recruit can help make that process more efficient as well as providing the ability to find chiropractors located outside of the US....
Over the last few years, the number of chiropractors has grown sharply in Canada. This increase can be explained by the rise in demand for chiropractic services and the high number of newcomers to the occupation. Considering that demand for chiropractic care in Canada is on the rise and the number of graduates from the doctoral program in chiropractic clearly exceeds the number of retirements and deaths, the number of chiropractors should...
