This personal observation report will focus on the occupation of chiropractor medicine. In April 2007 with Bedford v. Riello (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div., 2007), the Appellate Division of the New Jers ey Superior Court reopened the century-old debate about the chiropractor's role in the American healthcare system. Some of the questions the debate tried to answer were, what type of care may chiropractors offer? How are chiropractors permitted to treat their patients? How do chiropractors work with medical doctors? What social skills do chiropractors need when working with other people? This paper will focus on this last question and will define the top social skills needed by chiropractors.
