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 certified 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.
The ACBSP is the governing board for the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® (CCSP®) and Diplomate American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians® (DACBSP®) certifications. Various accredited chiropractic colleges offer the curricula and training leading to qualification for taking the certification exams. The ACBSP governs the administration of the examinations and certifications. These certifications are designed for chiropractic doctors who want to specialize in chiropractic sports medicine. The CCSP certification is pre-requisite to the DACBSP certification.
