What is D.C.?

The D.C. degree is acquirable only in the United States and several other countries where the governments legalize chiropractic, and on the other hand, is not acquirable in Japan.
In the United States, where Dr. Nakashima received his D.C., students are required to enter a chiropractic college accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education(CCE) which is approved by the federal authorities. Students are admitted to a chiropractic college after taking a certain program required by the CCE in undergraduate education. The completion of a 4-year program based on the CCE guidelines leads to the D.C. degree. That is, students of chiropractic have university education for no less than 8 years in total. The fact that medical students in Japan have 6 years of university education including general learning is indicative of how difficult it is to receive a D.C. The number of clinics having doctors with a D.C. in Japan is less than a hundred.
