“Future chiropractor”

LANE: My mother has once again set me up.
RORY: Another future doctor?
LANE: A future chiropractor. I think she’s losing confidence in my prospects.

A chiropractor is a practitioner of chiropractic, an alternative medicine practice focusing on manual therapy of the muscles and skeleton, especially the spine. It was founded in the 1890s by D.D. Palmer, who claimed to have gained knowledge of it from the spirit world. Despite being at odds with mainstream medicine, it is well established and commonly sought out, especially for back and neck pain.

Lane seems to think that her mother no longer believes she will marry a doctor, and is now willing to settle for any kind of health or wellness practitioner.
