You don’t have to be a professional athlete to seek help from a sports medicine professional. We treat people who participate in sports just for fun or want to get better results from their exercise program, patients who suffered injuries and want to regain full function and people who have disabilities and want to increase their mobility and capabilities. Sports Medicine bridges the gap between science and practice in the promotion of exercise and health, and in the scientific assessment, study and understanding of sports performance. Regular features include: sports injury prevention and treatment; exercise for health; drugs in sport and recommendations for training and nutrition. here.
Since 1980, the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP) has led the development of sports medicine certification and has managed a world-class credentialing process that ensures sports chiropractors meet competency standards to effectively work with and treat athletes and those engaged in athletic activities. in addition, the ACBSP offers continuing education and research seminars to facilitate the dissemination of the latest scientific knowledge, treatment trends, and best practices for patient care. Earning the DACBSP certification requires successful completion of a written exam, a six-station practical exam, a written project, 100 hours of practical experience in the field and a total of 300 hours of postgraduate education from an accredited chiropractic college.
FICS's aim is to set an appropriate minimum standard in theoretical and practical sports chiropractic education for chiropractors wanting to develop special competence in the field of sports chiropractic and to be qualified to serve on FICS teams, or teams selected with assistance from FICS, at international events. One of FICS primary objectives is promoting high standards of education and practice in sports chiropractic worldwide, in part through the development of postgraduate sports chiropractic programs.
The Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (ICCSP) program produces a well-rounded individual chiropractor who is qualified to work at sporting events throughout the world. Furthermore, it is the minimum qualification required to be part of a FICS chiropractic delegation at an international event such as regional and world championships, the World Games or the Olympic Games.
