The Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certificate is the gold standard of certification and CSCSs are highly recognized in the fields of Chiropractic, Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine.  The National Strength and Conditional Association (NSCA) is the worldwide leader in research-based knowledge and its practical application to improve athletic performance and fitness.  CSCS professionals apply scientific knowledge to help train athletes with the goal of improving their athletic performance.  CSCSs conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement effective strength training and conditioning programs.  They also provide guidance in nutrition and injury prevention.  Our seminars covers the material needed to help pass both parts of the CSCS exam.  Part I is the scientific foundations section which has 95 questions and is 1.5 hours in length.  The practical or applied section has 125 questions and is 2.5 hours in length.  There is no hands-on portion for the CSCS exam, but there are sections of the exam that are in video format.  

     Our seminars cover in depth exercise science, testing/evaluation, exercise techniques, program design including administration.  This course will provide you with the latest and most comprehensive information on the structure and function of body systems, training adaptations and exercise techniques, including key objectives/points/terms that are needed to help pass this exam.  The 12.5 hour seminar is broken down into 5 categories and at the end of each section we will discuss case histories and review what questions the NSCA feels are most important in obtaining the CSCS certificate.  This one-day seminar includes 12.5 CEU's.       






     The Spine Rehab Series was designed specifically for doctors of chiropractic wanting to advance their knowledge in functional rehabilitation.  Rehabilitation has been shown to reduce pain, promote healing, increase mobility while restoring normal function and movement for the patient.  The Spine Rehab Series provides hands-on rehabilitative education, allowing the doctor to assess the patient’s functional deficits, then teaching them how to create a specific treatment plan for each rehab patient.  Insurance companies are requiring a transition from passive to active care after 2 weeks of treatment and current research shows chiropractic care with therapeutic active rehab is becoming the gold standard.  The Spine Rehab Series will help the chiropractic physician achieve better patient outcomes, increased clinic revenues and improved practice growth through better patient care.  The newly developed courses will teach functional active care skills, allowing the doctor to implement rehabilitative methods instantly into their own practice.  If you have been thinking of integrating rehab into your practice or would just like to sharpen your rehabilitation skills, this is the class for you.  The Spinal Rehab Series hours can be applied toward the lecture hours needed for obtaining a diplomate from the American Chiropractic Board of Rehabilitation (ACRB). 







​     The American Chiropractic Board of Rehabilitation (ACRB) provides continuing education and training for chiropractors who wish to offer their patients the latest treatment and evidence-based rehabilitation techniques.  Chiropractors through the ACRB can obtain the Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Rehabilitation Board (DACRB) by fulfilling the post-graduate education requirements.  Earning the DACRB requires successful completion of: 150 hours of rehabilitation seminars, two written online exams, completion of the online McKenzie program (free), completion of the oral exam and a submission and acceptance of a relevant rehabilitation case study.  

     The ACRB is allowing Certified Chiropractic Sports Physicians (CCSP) to submit their program hours towards the 150-hour rehabilitation lecture requirement.  Most sport physicians (CCSP) will only need "50 hours of spine rehab" to complete the 150-hour lecture portion for the DACRB.  CSR Seminars has created a specific rehabilitation program designed for those CCSP's wanting to obtain a diplomate from the ACRB.  This program will allow the CCSP to finish the required hours in 4 - one day seminars.


     Our rehab series are "approved" and meet "all requirements" for fulfilling the lecture portion of the program.  The 150 hour ACRB requirements are: 45 hours of spine, 45 hours of extremity, 48 hours of electives and 12 hours of miscellaneous rehabilitation topics.  Our 12 live weekend seminars are broken down into 12 modules: 4 spine, 4 extremity and 4 elective, allowing the doctor to finish the rehab lecture requirements in less than 6 months.  The lecture series will give a "hands-on" approach educating the doctor in functional rehab and assist in preparing them for the ACRB written and oral examinations in becoming a board certified rehabilitation diplomate.  Our rehab series will allow the doctor to obtain the education, skills and training to give a higher level of care for the rehabilitative patient.  Our rehab series extensively covers indepth rehab principles ranging from: proper patient paperwork, outcome management/assessment, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, surgical and non-surgical management/rehab, functional movement patterns/screening processes, and much more. This information will allow the doctor to implement current rehabilitative methods instantly into their own practice.     

      Upon completion of the lecture series (including the free McKenzie review), the chiropractor is eligible to sit for the 2 online written examinations and additional information is available at www.acrb.org if needed. The rehab series will also contain lecture on preparing for the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), which will help those wanting to obtain the CSCS certificate through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.  The entire ACRB Diplomate program is co-sponsored by the Ohio State Chiropractic Association for Ohio CEU's.    



  Part I covers the assessment and evaluation of the upper extremities. The essentials of anatomy, physiology, and orthopedics are taught with the health care professional in mind.  The shoulder protocol has been the favorite of seminar attendees for years because of its depth and detail.  All topics covered are correlated for use in clinical practice.  Sports trauma and x-ray allow for a better understanding of athletic injuries which are treated in the office or encountered on the field.  Other topics include the pre-participation examination, sports nutrition, and hands-on upper extremity taping protocols.  For any physician working with athletes we understand that concussion management is of the upmost importance and we will teach you the guidelines from the 2014 International Conference on Sports Concussion.  We will also discuss the team physician's role and limitations for the state of Ohio.  Proper sideline protocols are taught for those wanting to be a team physician or just becoming more involved with sports within their practice. Nutritional information is presented for todays athlete with emphasis on their current demands during sporting activities.  Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is demonstrated to show various ways of treating soft tissue injuries with neuro-muscular taping (K-tape, Rock Tape, etc.) This one day seminar includes 12 CEUs.

  Part II teaches evaluation of the lower extremity with a strong emphasis on the orthopedic examination.  We will examine what to do when some patients cannot perform a normal functional examination.  Lower extremity trauma and x-ray will give you the tools you need to be able to recognize the most complex injuries and how to evaluate them properly.  Soft tissue injuries are covered in depth and protocols are given to help you diagnosis even the toughest cases.  IASTM goes in greater detail for lower extremity and various forms of taping (K-tape, Rock Tape) are shown as well. Lower extremity sports taping (sideline) will be more in depth with an emphasis on pre, post, and preventative taping methods and we understand this is where most of the athletic taping takes place and we will demonstrate this through hands on training.  Sports nutrition is included as well, with a variety of new topics related to the athletic patient and those sports injuries that benefit from nutritional supplementation.  Ethics and professionalism are taught for those wanting the 1.5 hours of credit.  Total CEUs 12.
