August 5, 2019 -- Congratulations to
two Logan Sports & Rehabilitation residents who passed the most recent
round of sports chiropractic certification exams.
Stastny, DC, MS, CCSP successfully passed the written portion of her Diplomate
of American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians (DACBSP®) exam, and Leslie Reece, DC
successfully passed the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP®)exam.
Resident Director and Clinician Melissa Engelson, DC, MS, CSCS, DACBSP, ICCSP
said this recognition represents a significant achievement in the journey of
successful Sports & Rehabilitation residents.
Melissa Engelson, DC, MS, CSCS, DACBSP, ICCSP, recently completed a two-week sports medicine rotation at the flagship Olympic Training Center (OTC) in Colorado Springs. This was her third rotation overall, having also been to the Lake Placid OTC and the Chula Vista location, which is now classified as a training site.
Dr. Engelson had the opportunity to provide chiropractic care to Olympic- and Paralympic-caliber athletes and hopefuls, as well as work in an interdisciplinary setting alongside full-time OTC staff. They included chiropractors, physical therapists, athletic trainers and exercise physiologists.
Serving at the main OTC were three other sports medicine volunteers—a chiropractor from Utah, a local athletic trainer and a medical doctor from South Carolina. In addition to clinic responsibilities, Dr. Engelson was assigned to practice coverage for track cycling, men’s gymnastics, boxing, and men’s and women’s freestyle wrestling, and men’s Greco Roman wrestling.
Dr. Engelson commented that these rotations allowed for a “wonderful chance to sharpen my clinical and emergency care skills and knowledge in one of the most elite locations for sports medicine.”
Dr. Melissa Engelson has successfully completed the requirements to be certified as a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP).
This training will aid Dr. Engelson in the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries by enhancing her diagnostic skills and patient care. The DACBSP accreditation exists to provide a uniform standard of education which assures teams and athletes that the doctor has met a high level of competency in chiropractic sports medicine. Dr. Engelson joins 300 others nationally who hold this designation.
