The field of chiropractic medicine continues to grow and evolve despite being a discipline that is more than 100 years old. Today, some of those changes are taking place in practice, and affect the compensation a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC), or a chiropractic physician as they are also known, earns as a result.
If you are wondering “how much do chiropractors make?” you are not alone. It is a growing area of interest that is studied by other industries as well. The 2018 salary and expense survey from Chiropractic Economics shows that the average Doctor of Chiropractic salary in 2018 is $107,310, which is a significant increase from $76,542 in 2016. This differs from their total compensation, which will be discussed later.
