No, Chiropractors will not be replaced by AI. It's just impossible, it may be possible in the next 70 years or so, but not in 30 years. Chiropractors have the special ability to use force. Well, most robots are unable to do so, and chiropractors have to give advice, they also have to manipulate your body parts to get them into position. So, for me, its a bit hard to imagine that.
