Job Description for Chiropractor

Chiropractors are tasked with physically rehabilitating clients from injuries, aging, or particular health conditions.

All of the processes involved should be explained fully to clients, so strong communication and customer service skills are important in order to help them feel at ease and answer any questions they might have.
