Sports chiropractic focuses on the conservative management, rehabilitation, and performance optimization of the neuromusculoskeletal system. This is achieved through accurate diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment including chiropractic adjustments, soft-tissue therapies, and targeted rehabilitation measures. Sports chiropractors recognize the value of a multidisciplinary approach, and will communicate with coaches, trainers, and other health professionals to ensure the best outcome for the athlete
Further education for sports chiropractors begins with the Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (ICCSP) qualification, which is awarded by the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS). This qualification encompasses theoretical, practical, and experiential components. You can trust an ICCSP level chiropractor to effectively diagnose and manage sports injuries, as well as providing advice on injury prevention and functional enhancement.
