Patient Reviews

As an athlete, Dr. Karen Roitz provided great insight into managing my injury while it heals and strengthening muscles so I can keep active. She is great to work with and I highly recommend anyone to see Dr. Roitz for your chiropractic and sports injury needs.

What makes sports chiropractors different?

All sports chiropractors have obtained board certification in sports injuries and rehabilitation from either the 100-hour post-graduate Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) program or the 300-hour Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP). The CCSP designation requires a written test and CPR certification, while the DACBSP requires a written test, CPR certification, a practical exam, 100 hours of on-field experience, and a paper either accepted for publication by a peer reviewed journal or an abstract presentation at the ACBSP’s annual symposium. Training includes emergency procedures, taping, advanced diagnostic procedures, diagnostic imaging, extremity management, rehabilitation, sports psychology, nutrition, and other sports related topics.

Sports chiropractors generally have training in cutting edge techniques such as Active Release Technique (ART), the Graston Technique (GT), Kinesiotaping, Rock Tape, FAKTR, Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT), the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), and others. As a result, many sports chiropractors have busy practices treating both athletes and active people of all ages.

Sports chiropractors are leading the charge of chiropractic into the mainstream. By becoming an integral part of the sports medicine team, sports chiropractors are becoming highly sought after specialists by both athletes and active patients.
