    .
    The words seem to be used as synonyms in some quarters (even though chiropractitioner is not in the online English dictionaries), but if you happen to be in Germany:

    in Germany, a chiropractor and a chiropractitioner are very different. In that country a person who uses the title chiropractor will have successfully completed a course of study, usually of a minimum of five years, at a college/university accredited by the European Council on Chiropractic Education (ECCE). On the other hand, a chiropractitioner (also called a Heilpraktiker) usually has no formal qualification in chiropractic and at most may have completed a series of weekend seminars (personal communication, President, German Chiropractic Association).
