Course Description

WITH GREAT SADNESS, we have cancelled this Masterclass due to the low registrations.  We hope to be able to continue to bring members access to quality speakers via the online Masterclasses and live seminars where possible. 

BELOW IS THE PROGRAMME OUTLINE. FICS will aim to turn each of these sessions into an online masterclass for our members. 

Dr John Wilhelm – Sports Chiropractic For Elite and Olympic Athletes
In this lecture world-renowned sports chiropractor and two-time Olympic sports chiropractic provider, Dr Jonathan Wilhelm defines “What is sports chiropractic?” and identifies the education and steps necessary to certify and work as a sports chiropractor.  But in this lecture Dr. Wilhelm provides far more than just a layout of definitions and educational paths, he takes you behind the curtain to offer his hard-earned insights and keys to working with elite and Olympic athletes.  You will learn the skills that a sports chiropractor should understand and those skills they MUST possess to work with elite athlete populations.  We will investigate what Dr Wilhelm thinks is the TOP SKILL every sports chiropractor must hone and possess to work at the highest levels.  He even provides his personal pathway from small town chiropractor to Olympic sports medicine provider in 5 years and 25 steps.  Dr. Wilhelm has built a reputation for his exceptional work and fostering connections with elite athletes, teams, and federations from many countries around the globe, and at the end of his lecture, you will be able to examine his 9 “Golden Nuggets” of sports chiropractic success.
