Many of the biggest names in sports have found the benefits of chiropractic care an integral part of their training regimen. Athletes like Jerry Rice, Sidney Crosby, Lance Armstrong, and Tiger Woods all proudly talk about how chiropractic has helped them to be at the top of their game.
Chiropractic is also a key part of the U.S. Olympic Team’s resources to keep the Olympians at the top of their game. A little known fact is that the Director of Sports Medicine Clinics for the U.S. Olympic Committee is a chiropractor (Dr. Bill Moreau, who personally taught many of the courses Dr. Passey took for his CCSP certification).
We are proud to announce that Dr. Passey is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® (CCSP®), which gives him training and knowledge specific to the needs of athletes.

What is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician®?
A Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® (or CCSP®) is a Doctor of Chiropractic that has completed 120+ hours of specialized post-graduate training in sports relate topics, including injury prevention and management. After completing the coursework, the doctor must pass a comprehensive written examination. After successfully completing the examination, the doctor is then a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® from the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP). They must complete continuing eduction every year in sports medicine in order to keep their certification current. As of 2015, only about 3% of all practicing chiropractors in Washington State have the CCSP® certification.
While most chiropractors treat sports injuries, not all of them have spent much time studying conditions and case management specific to athletes. If you are an active athlete and experience problems that need special attention, your best bet is to find a CCSP® who has additional training in such matters.
Dr. Passey received his CCSP® in 2011 and is available to help with your athletic needs. He is aware of the special circumstances that surround athletic injuries, whether it’s on the amateur or professional level. Dr. Passey has treated athletes representing many sports, including soccer, gymnastics, baseball, football, basketball, figure skating, volleyball, and cheerleading to name a few.
