American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians™

PROMOTING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE AND CLINICAL COMPETENCE FOR CHIROPRACTORS SPECIALIZING IN SPORTS MEDICINE AND PHYSICAL FITNESS.

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 Coordinator and Moderator, DACBSP® Certification Written Requirement Review Committee, Ethics Committee, Job Analysis Committee, Position Paper Committee, Practical Examination Committee, Reading/Reference List Committee, Symposium Committee, Written Exam Committee.
