Healthcare experience with chiropractor?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I was just wondering if anyone has had direct patient care experience in a chiropractic clinic. I know "physical therapy aide" is a common position pre-PAs obtain, but I've never heard of students working alongside a chiropractor. The treatments seem to be similar to physical therapy (such as electrical stimulation, massage, therapeutic ultrasound) so I wasn't sure if there's a distinguishable difference. My mother was diagnosed with cancer so I've been at home taking care of her and it's a bit difficult to pursue an EMT, medical assisting, etc. license so I'm trying to find somewhere close to my house where I can work with on-the-job training.


Thank you!

I havent heard of anyone using chiropractic HCE before but i dont see why it would be a problem. I volunteered in PT and OT at a local hospital in the rehab department for 200+ hours and it was a major bonus on my application. I dont see why this would be any different.


Heck, my payed HCE was ~4,500 hours in Mental Health (Mental Health Tech/Intake Specialist) and that seems LESS applicable than this.
