What is a C.O.R.E Chiropractic Certified Doctor?

Aside from completing four years of undergraduate work for a bachelor’s degree, four years of Chiropractic College for a doctorate degree, passing Parts I, II, III, and IV of National Boards, Passing Texas State Boards, all CORE doctors must complete a full year residency at any one of the four Core locations.  The goal of this residency is to further cultivate the didactic knowledge obtained in the many years of training and apply this knowledge in a real world clinical setting. Emphasis is placed on obtaining an accurate case history, examination of all neuromusculoskeletal areas using appropriate orthopedic, neurological, radiographic, and physical testing procedures, formulation of the appropriate diagnosis, and execution of the correct treatment plan.  Science and practical application come together to mold a doctor that can direct your care with purpose and efficiency while still demonstrating the personal touch needed for patient care.  Only after a doctor exhibits clinical mastery in a condition specific, rehabilitation oriented environment can he/ she be classified as a CORE CHIROPRACTIC CERTIFIED DOCTOR.
