Specialized training to keep you moving
Many healthcare providers claim they specialize in sports injuries, but how many of them have the training to back up those claims?
In addition to the 4-year chiropractic degree, a sport specialist chiropractor has 2+ years of formal, full time education in sport injury diagnosis, management and prevention. This rigorous program involves coursework in sport medicine, research, teaching, 1000 hours of on-field work with athletes, and 1st hand exposure to relevant medical specialties.
Upon the successful completion of the program and the subsequent examination, only then can a chiropractor legally call themselves a “specialist”.
