The courses are designed to help the physician obtain a greater awareness of the responsibilities of the sports physician, the ability to instruct athletes in rehabilitative procedures and athletic training principles, the ability to evaluate and treat typical sports and recreational injuries, and the ability to treat athletes in emergency situations.
The goal of the CSCS is to improve athletic performance. CSCS professionals conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs, and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention.
As trained CSCS professionals, the Better Chiropractic team works with all types of athletes. We can assist with the development of training and conditioning programs for entire teams, or we can help individual patients to reach their full potential as athletes.
A Chiropractic Sports Physician can work with injured athletes to promote healing, return the injured area to normal function, and prevent further damage.
After evaluating and diagnosing the patient's condition, the staff uses a combination of therapeutic techniques designed to meet the needs of each individual patient. As the patient continues through treatment, they will re-evaluate the patient's condition periodically and adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
When developing treatment plans for sports medicine patients, the staff at Better Chiropractic may incorporate chiropractic care, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and other techniques for optimal results.
