As with any profession, salaries start lower and increase with time for chiropractors. Those living in wealthier areas are obviously able to charge more, and therefore earn more money. A chiropractor that is just starting out can expect to earn approximately $40,000 in the US. The mean salary in the US was $94,454 in 2009, and in 2011, the median was $129,119. Currently, salaries in Australia range from AU$47,626 - AU$97,945 on average. Pay in Great Britain is also comparable, where chiropractors start out at about £20,000 a year and can easily pull in £30,000 to £50,000 or more annually with experience.
