There are a few ways to go about finding a sports chiropractor in Cary. Let’s look at how to decide on a chiropractor that is athletically focused and treats athletes.
CCSP Sports Chiropractor
One option is searching for a sports chiropractor that has a CCSP. This typically brings up a lot of options to choose from in the Triangle area. It’s important to note that In order to officially call yourself a sports chiropractor, you legally must have a have a CCSP (Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician) certification. This requires licensed chiropractors to take 100 hours of post-doctorate classes and pass a diplomate exam. It doesn’t add to their scope of practice but gives them some more experience and skills in addressing sports-related injuries.
Chiropractic for Athletes Blog, Reviews and “About Me”
The second option in finding a chiropractor who is good with athletes in Cary, Apex, and Raleigh is checking out their web page, “about me” page, reviews, and blog. This is typically going to give you a little bit more background about the doctor than just simply seeing CCSP after their name. Don’t get me wrong, a CCSP is great to have, but many doctors have a CCSP and still might not see a lot of athletes or sports injuries. A chiropractic adjustment from a CCSP and a chiropractor without a CCSP are going to be relatively similar. What’s important is that the chiropractor has other advanced treatment skills and assessment techniques to compliment joint manipulation.
