Chiropractic School in Maine - ME
Maine does not require as much pre-chiropractic schooling as some other states. Prior to attending chiropractic school in Maine, the state’s Board of Chiropractic Licensure does require that you have two years of college study. After completing this requirement, you must enroll in a chiropractic school that is approved and accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education or by a similar agency recognized by the U.S Department of Education.
Chiropractic college will take about three to five years to complete, making your total schooling five to seven years long. Techniques and skills you will learn include psychomotor skills, introduction to palpation, spinal assessment, extremities techniques, soft tissue techniques, and Flexion Distraction Technique. Most, if not all, chiropractic schools in Maine also require an internship or some type of clinical experience, usually at least two trimesters long. During this internship, you will be able to put into use the skills and techniques you have learned in your classroom training, in a real-world setting such as a hospital, practitioner’s office or clinic (which is affiliated with your chiropractic school). At the end of your chiropractic college schooling, you will receive a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
