Always an item of interest for chiropractic students, average chiropractic income is talked about a lot, but there's no way to absolutely pin it down. Some students really want to hear that when they graduate they will magically have an $85,000 paycheck waiting for them, but it doesn't work that way. If you see a lot patients five or six days per week, charge a relatively high fee per visit, manage to actually collect those fees, keep your expenses such as office rent and employee salaries at a modest level, then you will make more than the average chiropractor. On the other hand, if you see a few patients on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, charge a lower than average fee, have a poor collection rate, pay high rent on an extravagant office space, and pay a stable of assistants, you're not going to do so well.
In other words, there are lots of variables contributing to average chiropractic incomes, so when someone tosses out a number, don't naively think that getting a license automatically entitles you to the "average chiropractic income"(which, by the way, falls somewhere in the 60 to 100 thousand dollar range, depending on who's telling the story.)
