Each chiropractor graduates with the same degree: doctorate of chiropractic (D.C.). As in medicine, chiropractors can specialize in many different areas. It is the specialization of the chiropractor and clinical experience that allow for differentiation in the field and best enable the doctor to provide the highest level of care. Many chiropractors advertise that they treat ‘sports injuries’ without ever having any true training for such and/or experience with treating athletes at sporting events. This is not fair to patients who have legitimate sports injuries and are looking for a specialist to help them. On this topic, please also consider that training alone does not guarantee that a doctor is proficient with the application of technique(s). Not only does Dr. Manison offer the highest level of training in the area, but he also has the most experience treating sports injuries.
