The field of chiropractic sports sciences has undergone tremendous growth both in Canada and internationally and the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (Canada) (RCCSS(C)) and its Fellows have been a major source of this growth. The ability of the RCCSS(C) to foster an academic environment where Fellows and residents are encouraged to conduct research and publish their findings has helped lead to increased acceptance of chiropractic at all levels of sport including major sporting events and Games along with greater understanding of sports injuries, their diagnosis, and management. Similarly the international sports chiropractic community has seen unprecedented growth in terms of both scholarship and participation at major international sports events. To help continue this growth, the Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (JCCA) is publishing its 7th annual Sports Chiropractic Issue in December 2015.
