Social distancing is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to limit the spread of coronavirus. Social distancing means avoiding close contact with others (keeping a distance of 6 feet or more), avoiding crowds, and suspending social practices, like shaking hands. Individuals can practice social distancing by avoiding places and events where keeping a 6-foot distance from others is unlikely or impossible. Organizations support social distancing when large gatherings are cancelled to slow virus spread.
The typical applicant at a chiropractic college has already acquired four years of pre-medical undergraduate college education, including courses in biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, physics, psychology and related lab work.

Because of the hands-on nature of chiropractic, and the intricate adjusting techniques, a significant portion of time is spent in clinical training.
