Course Description


FICS/RCC Seminar – Upper Extremity Module

This practical seminar brought to you by the Royal College of Chiropractors’ Sport & Exercise Faculty (RCCSEF) and the International Federation of Chiropractic Sport (FICS) can be undertaken as a stand-alone CPD event by any chiropractor or final year chiropractic student who is serious about becoming a great practitioner and getting the best results for their patients.

This seminar meets one of the ‘hands-on module’ requirements of the FICS Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (ICCSP) qualification; the minimum standard for those wishing to develop competencies in sports chiropractic and to serve at official FICS international events. To learn more about the ICCSP and the conditions for enrolment, please visit:

The 2½ day programme is the first to incorporate FICS’ renewed curriculum and includes a range of lectures with a sports chiropractic focus, although relevant information for general chiropractic practice is included.
