The academic training of every chiropractor concentrates on the knowledge of the entire group of diseases and conditions affecting the human body. Towards the end of the training it concentrates, more specifically, on the anomalies, deviations (scoliosis), injuries and degenerations that affect the mechanics of the human body (bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, fascias and other tissues in charge of holding together bones).
Only 4 chiropractors in Quebec have completed this extra 2 full years of training of about 3,000 hours. This program consists in developing an even more thorough expertise in the recognition and care of anomalies, deviations (scoliosis), injuries and other specific degenerations of the mechanics of the human body. During the program, these chiropractors must work on a daily basis in specialized clinics of orthopedic, rheumatology and neurology at the University Hospital of Saskatoon. Moreover, in addition to training in statistical analysis, research methodology and medical literature analysis, these chiropractors must complete 4 case studies for publication; 1 literature review, 4 book reviews, 1 medical research and multiples presentations to their program tutors and regular chiropractic students.
