Our Graduate Success Stories
My personal experience at Herzing was a good one; I enjoyed and benefitted from all of my courses and was happy with the up-to-date technology offered in my CAD classes
Combining medical office administration with direct patient care, this career makes you an integral part of a chiropractic office.
Chiropractors rely on technicians for assistance with running the chiropractic office as well as working with patients. Typical duties for chiropractic technicians include patient registration and scheduling, managing chiropractic equipment and supplies, handling medical billing and coding, answering phones, verifying insurance, recording vital signs, and teaching patients to follow the chiropractic plans and goals for recovery and good health. Technicians may also take x-rays, assist chiropractors during exams, and conduct re-exams for patients who receive continual care.
Also called chiropractic assistants, chiropractic technicians are typically employed by a chiropractor, a clinic comprised of several chiropractors, integrated health and wellness centers, rehabilitation facilities, and pain management centers.

- Like working with people
- Are interested in health issues
