Altogether the education takes 6 years which includes 5 years academic education with an international accredited chiropractic school with 1 year after graduation working alongside a chiropractor if outside Sweden or if you complete the 1 year in Sweden you must complete it in a hospital setting.

After these 6 years then there are opportunities to specialise in a specific treatment technique or further education. Thus a specialised chiropractor will either use a particular treatment method or have carried out postgraduate education.

Example of treatment techniques

  • Applied Kinesiology
  • Cranio-sacral
  • Sacro Occipital Technique
  • Gonstead Technique

Example of Postgraduate Education

  • International Chiropractic Sport Science Diploma
  • Diploma in Chiropractic Orthopaedics
  • Diploma in Chiropractic Neurology
  • Diploma in Chiropractic Paediatrics (Chiropractic for children)
  • Certified Animal Chiropractor


At KiropraktorCentrum the chiropractors have either a specialised education or are undertaking postgraduate education. You can ask about specialised qualifications when you meet your chiropractor.
