The 2018-2019 DACBSP has been cancelled, owing to low enrollment. If you are interested in future DACBSP programs, please contact Life West's Postgraduate & Continuing Education office.
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.
