The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) is pleased to debut to the chiropractic profession – prior to public launch in late 2013 – its new program, Athletic TIPS: Toward Injury Prevention in Sports (TIPS).Drawing upon input from a multidisciplinary, blue-ribbon advisory board, TIPS serves student and amateur athletes by providing educational resources, such as workshops presented exclusively by TIPS-certified doctors of chiropractic to coaches, trainers, educators and parents in communities nationwide.
"TIPS focuses on the recognition, treatment and prevention of sports-related injuries, as well as general health and performance enhancement," stated Dr. Spencer Baron, chairman, TIPS advisory board and team chiropractor, Miami Dolphins. "A cornerstone of the program is its parent / coach workshops, which utilize and depend upon the expertise and engagement of doctors of chiropractic nationwide. In 2014, TIPS will begin to offer certification courses to train DCs on guidelines for conducting workshops."
In anticipation of high interest in the TIPS certification courses, introductory presentations will be made at the following functions:
- Life West Chiropractic College (The Wave): Aug. 1-3, 2013
- Palmer Davenport Homecoming: Aug. 8-10, 2013
- Florida Chiropractic Association's National Convention & Expo: Aug. 22-25, 2013
- Congress of Chiropractic State Associations (COCSA): Nov. 7-10, 2013
"Attendees will learn the importance of TIPS and its mission, as well as how to capitalize on this program for individual practice growth," added Dr. Baron, who noted that the workshops will be most significant since they present an opportunity to better serve and connect with local communities. "TIPS is an innovative approach to sports healthcare, and a guaranteed game-changer for athletes and doctors of chiropractic nationwide."
