Why YOU should become a sports chiropractor!

Posted by PHS Chiropractic on Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Deciding to become a sports chiropractor is a tough decision. There is a long list of requirements for becoming a CCSP (Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician®) or a DACBSP (Diplomate American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians®).

This blog was written by Amy Berglund, DC, DACBSP, a member of the ACA Sports Council. The blog was originally published here.

Although becoming a sports chiropractor is hard work from the board exams, research, time commitments (just to name a few) this blog lists the Top 10 Reasons to bite the bullet and further your chiropractic career in sports medicine

Top 10 Reasons:

  1. Gain exbasic-propertise in both prevention and rehabilitation of sports related injuries.

  2. Learn how to treat your own ailments. After all, most doctors interested in sports medicine are athletes themselves.

  3. Expand your practice. Employ new techniques; patients will be knocking at your door once you have a specialty.

  4. Empower your patients to expect Olympic level quality of care.

  5. Achieve notoriety in your profession. Become the chiropractor that others in the profession will look up to. Your Alma mater will write about so that your state association will ask you to come and speak and the local newspapers will write an article about you.

  6. You'll be in demand. Yes, a sports medicine career is not a cheap specialty and there are countless hours of volunteering; however, you get out what you put in.

  7. Keep up with the latest research and trends in the industry. Maintaining a DACBSP requires 26 CEC's per year, this will be easy!

  8. Top level athletes are a great and a very rewarding population to work with. They care about meeting their goals and are grateful for all the care they receive. Nothing is more rewarding than watching an injured athlete return to play stronger than before.

  9. FMST_1080.jpgBecome part of a tight-knit group of remarkable chiropractors. There are only a handful of doctors that have chosen to rise above the rest of the profession to pursue sports medicine.

  10. Travel the world. Many teams will travel with sports chiropractors so get your passport ready!
