Doctors of Chiropractic
treat the whole person and are poised to provide a positive impact on their patient’s health, performance and quality of life. Chiropractors offer less invasive, non-surgical treatments that do not rely on prescription drugs. While many chiropractors focus on care for the entire family, Doctors of Chiropractic can also focus their practice on specialty care. Areas of focus include sports, neurology, pediatrics, orthopedics, nutrition or radiology.
As a career, the field of chiropractic provides a great quality of life. According to the Chiropractic Economics 2013 Salary and Expense survey, Doctors of Chiropractic spend an average of 32 hours per week engaged in patient care and the average total compensation for a DC is just over $128,000. In addition, over 40% of all chiropractors are self-employed and own their own clinic.
The future of chiropractic is bright! Employment of chiropractors is projected to grow 15% from 2012-2022, faster than average for all occupations
Most importantly, what other career allows you to serve others on a daily basis?

Victor Tong, DC, DACBR, served as the featured speaker for the 8th annual Joseph W. Howe Oration in Diagnostic Imaging held at Logan University on May 28th.
Dr. Tong graduated from Logan in September 1979. He was the first to start and complete the radiology residency program under Joseph Howe, DC, DACBR, Fellow, ACCR at Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC). Dr. Tong has been teaching radiology in chiropractic colleges for more than 31 years. Additionally, he maintains a private Radiologic Consultation practice in Southern California and teaches chiropractic education seminars in California and Arizona.
The topic of Dr. Tong’s address was ethical issues in chiropractic radiology. He discussed professional, clinical and research ethics in chiropractic radiology, and specifically how ethics contribute to the growth and maturity of a medical discipline.
Dr. Tong posed questions such as whether it is ethical to operate imaging technology that is less than state of the art; should there be a legal requirement to outlaw dated imaging technology; and should the chiropractor be held accountable for misdiagnosis arising from dated imaging technology.
He said in order for the chiropractic profession to survive, we have to routinely prove our contribution and value that we create for our patients.
"Adherence to some of the very basic ethical principles in our daily practice with a patient-centered approach is one way to guarantee that we don’t lose sight of what our ultimate mission, goals and objectives ought to be," he explained in his presentation. "Getting results for the patient is not enough for our scientific minded community. We need to continue with research to understand why and how thing works and what else can work better to bring better results to our patients. In the process of ethical research, we can shape protocol, change policy and influence the community we serve in a positive way."
