DACBSP V: Advanced Topics in Evaluation and Management of the Upper Extremities (Flanagan, Jan 12-13)
If you wish to earn your Diplomate, register for the DACBSP Series instead of this or any individual seminar. The online learning portions are only accessible to series enrollees and may not be purchased separately.
This 12.5 hour course will provide Doctors of Chiropractic with the information and practical skills relating to the integration of chiropractic care in the evaluation of upper extremity biomechanics. The course is primarily lecture based, although there will be case studies and hands-on-learning of the techniques used with commonly encountered conditions in the athletic population. This course does contain evaluative measures in the form of a final examination using multiple-choice questions to evaluate learner outcomes.
Saturday, 8:30am - 6:00pm (1 hour lunch break)
Sunday, 8:00am - 12:00pm
Life West, home of the Sports Performance Institute (SPI), is the place to advance in chiropractic sports and performance expertise. Study with excellent faculty and apply your skills on the field with Life West athletic programs alongside SPI staff.
The Diplomate American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians® (DACBSP®) program utilizes interactive experiences and dedicated hands-on sessions to prepare you to earn the prestigious DACBSP. The program consists of a combination of live weekends and online learning components totaling 216 hours of study. There are 100 hours of coursework at Life West, 116 hours of online coursework, practice in the field, and written and practical exams. It is a rigorous, professional credentialing program that promotes professional knowledge and competency of chiropractic practitioners engaged in the specialty of chiropractic sports performance.
Once completed, you’ll be ready for the DACBSP® exam given through the ACBSP™. In addition, you’ll be prepared to sit for the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists (CSCS) exam given by the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
CCSP ® and DACBSP® programs may be taken concurrently.
