Chiropractor Salaries in Oklahoma
A chiropractor salary in Oklahoma starts between $53,000 and $59,000 annually, although it trends far higher with experience, location, and self-employment. While the expected beginning salary normally stays within the fifty-thousand mark, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the actual mean salary for chiropractors in Oklahoma is closer to $85,000. The considerable difference in average beginning and state mean salaries can be accounted for by the much higher incomes that most self employed chiropractors enjoy, and pay increases that accompany experience and reputation.
