Sports Medicine Explained

At SOHMA Integrative Health Center, our provider, Dr. Daniel Hoover, is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner® (CCSP®). The CCSP® certification is acquired through the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians™ (ACBSP™) and requires the doctor to attend a minimum of 100 hours of a 120 hour postgraduate program. This instruction is specific to physical fitness and the evaluation and treatment of injuries encountered in sports. Following the completion of these hours, the doctor must then take and successfully pass a comprehensive written examination.

This training will aid the doctor in the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries by enhancing his diagnostic skills and patient care. The CCSP® certification exists to provide a uniform standard of education that assures teams and athletes that the doctor has met a minimum level of competency in chiropractic sports medicine. Dr. Hoover joins over 5500 others internationally who hold this designation.
