Our doctors have obtained the postgraduate designation of Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP®) by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP). In order to qualify for the CCSP® certification the doctor attended a 120 hour program. This instruction is specific to physical fitness and the evaluation and treatment of injuries encountered in sports. Following the completion of these hours, the doctor must then take and successfully pass comprehensive written board examination. This training aids the doctor in the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries by enhancing our diagnostic skills and patient care. The CCSP® accreditation exists to provide a uniform standard of education that assures teams and athletes that the doctor has met a minimum level of competency in chiropractic sports medicine. By having this additional training they are able to care for professional and Olympic athletes from across the globe.
