I’ve heard that chiropractors aren’t real doctors.

Chiropractic doctors complete about the same number of college classroom hours as medical practitioners. Chiropractors complete at least two years of undergraduate education plus at least four years of specialized chiropractic training. Chiropractors must pass both national and state board exams before practicing. Like other types of doctors, chiropractors meet stringent licensing requirements and follow a strict code of ethics.
