2021 Practical Exams

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 ACBSP™ depends on the generous contribution of leadership, time, and knowledge from a nine (9) member elected volunteer board of directors and many more volunteers who serve on various committees. Our current committees and volunteer positions include the following:

Abstract Committee, Branding & Public Relations Committee, Certification Appeals Committee, Ethics Committee, Exam Remediation Committee, Legacy Committee, Nominating Committee, Position Paper Committee, Position Policy Committee, Practical Exam Committee, Student Engagement Committee, Symposium Planning Committee, Written Exam Committee
