Experience and education are generally covered sufficiently in the resume which you will attach with the cover letter, so you need to highlight information that is not included in the resume.
First, always let the employer know how you learned about the position. In the sample chiropractors cover letter below, the candidate learned about the position in the newspaper.
The following sample chiropractors cover letter makes perfect use of these elements.
When applying for this type of position it is also a good idea to let the prospective employer know something about your philosophy or approach.
The candidate in the sample chiropractors cover letter above does this in the next to last paragraph by informing the employer that she is also a physical therapist and then by mentioning her own approach to chiropractic care.

Ms. Karen Rogers
Phoenix Health Center
2907 Mesa Heights Road
Phoenix, AZ 55555
Dear Ms. Rogers:
In response to your recent advertisement for a chiropractor in the Phoenix Sun News, I am enclosing my resume for your review.
I was excited to see an opening for a chiropractor at your center because it has been my dream for years to be part of a true multi disciplinary team approach to treating patients like the approach for which your center has become well known.
Houghton Chiropractic Services, where I have worked for several years, has moved in the direction of a holistic, multi disciplinary team but is still missing some of the specialties that I consider essential.
As you can see from my resume, I have experience as both a chiropractor and a physical therapist. I stay abreast of findings affecting chiropractic, nutrition and the use of herbal remedies by attending workshops and reading extensively. I believe these efforts have contributed to my consistently high patient satisfaction ratings.
I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss details of the chiropractor position and answer questions you might have about my qualifications and goals. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.
