Chiropractors are not "Chiropraktiker/-Therapeuten"
The chiropractic profession must not be confused with that of the German “Chiropraktiker”, a role similar to that of the English “healer”. “Chiropraktiker” and “Chirotherapeuten” can only be found in Germany. In contrast to the five to seven year university degree chiropractors must pass, a degree recognised across the planet (just not in Germany) and that conforms to World Health Organisation guidelines (WHO), no standard has been established for the role of “Chiropraktiker”. So it should come as no surprise that there are only around 100 chiropractors in Germany, but around 10,000 “Chiropraktiker” and “Chirotherapeuten”.
