How do chiropractors achieve sports certification?

 

Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) has completed a minimum of 100 hours of post doctoral education in specialized sports medicine topics and must pass a Board examination.

How do certified sports chiropractors maintain their credentials?

Upon reaching the CCSP level, the sports chiropractor remains abreast of the latest research and treatment innovations through continuing education and field experience. The American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP) offers an annual seminar to update the doctors on the latest research and techniques.


How do I know the certifications are valid and meaningful?

The CCSP certification program is taught by accredited chiropractic colleges and the examinations are administered by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians. The certification program is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), a national multi-industry organization that ensures certification programs adhere to modern standards of practice for the certification industry, including objective assessment of professional knowledge and competence.
