The CCSP® certification requires the doctor to attend a minimum of 100 hours of a 120 hour postgraduate program.

Following the completion of these hours, the doctor must then take and successfully pass a comprehensive written examination.
This training will aid Dr. Marion in the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries by enhancing his diagnostic skills and patient care. The CCSP® certification exists to provide a uniform standard of education that assures teams and athletes that the doctor has met a minimum level of competency in chiropractic sports medicine. Dr. Brian Marion DC, ART, CKTP joins over 5500 others internationally who currently hold this certification. This certification places Dr. Marion in a unique niche of sports chiropractors in Chicago as he is only 1 of 10 who hold this certification and only 1 of 15 who are full-body ART® certified, allowing him to evaluate and treat sports injuries with an active, and not a, passive approach.
