    Believe me, you definitely make the right decision. It will be a miracle if chiropractic is still around in ten years. Doctors of Physical Therapy ( DPT ) will be the choice for insurance reimbursement... http://www.dynamicchiropractic.com/mpacms/dc/article.php?id=55808 And most chiropractors are aware of this fact. With reimbursement at an all time low, most chiropractors are struggling just to stay in business..http://azcapitoltimes.com/news/2012/02/03/stop-insurance-industry-war-on-patients-who-rely-on-chiropractic-care/ Why would you even think about spending $ 150,000 ( plus interest ) on a student loan, when there is at least a 50% chance you won't survive and still have to pay back all that money...http://www.squidoo.com/chiropractic-student-loan-debt Not to mention, how b-o-r-i-n-g just cracking necks and backs all day would be lolhttp://chiropractorswife.blogspot.com/2011/03/want-to-be-doctor-of-chiropractic.htmlhttp://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=ApYNPCQR4qtGdcD5hFx8WAwjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20070831213751AAQ1Obx
