No, it's nothing like that. They take the same boards now. MD and DO are essentially synonymous, and for our purposes in this discussion, are pretty much the same. The only difference is their access to competitive specialties.
Physical therapy is evidence-based, the practice of chiropractic "medicine" is based on voodoo. Like homeopaths (gag).
