Last year I started the process to become a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP). Sports Chiropractor’s are doctors of chiropractic who have specialized interest and post-graduate training in sports injuries and physical fitness. It was the first time since taking board exams and graduating (1994), that I can say, I truly challenged myself academically. Although studying was taxing and a bit stressful, I’ve come to appreciate this experience. After opening the mail today, I am proud to announce that I did in fact pass my board exam and can call myself a CCSP! I learned a lot and have already applied this knowledge in practice. Hmm…on to the next academic challenge.
