Announcing the ACASC and Marc Pro Affinity relationship
Marc Pro Option for members of the ACASC and the ACA:
The ACA Sports Council has formed an Affinity relationship with the Marc Pro Company that has incredible benefits for our membership and a potential for being a great financial resource for the ACA Sports Council.
This benefit applies to all members of the ACA SC and the ACA. Marc Pro normally will offer an automatic introductory off of 5% discount on the Marc Pro unit. The price with this discount is $617.00. However, all qualified members of the ACASC and ACA who decide to join the affiliate program will have the opportunity to buy their first 2 Marc Pro unit for $395.00 per unit. That is an amazing savings. They do this so that the DC can use one unit for themselves, so they can experience the amazing effect and they can also use the second unit for their patients to take home and experience their ability to recover from a hard workout or experience the dramatic “anti inflammatory” properties (see the “Anti-inflammatory” article).
Call for Papers - Sports Issue of the JCCA
The 4th Annual Sports Issue of JCCA (Journal Canadian Chiropractic Association) was published in December 2012 and was a great success portraying the fine work of our Sports Fellows and Residents. It is available online at PubMed. There is free access.
Building on the success of 2012, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Mohsen Kazemi has been appointed to run the JCCA Sports Issue on an annual basis.
This is a great opportunity to showcase sports chiropractic research. The papers could be case reports, original research, or literature reviews. These papers will be peer reviewed and the principal author will be contacted by JCCA with the reviewers' comments.

ACA Sports Council Field Manual
This manual is intended to provide a guideline to the ACA Sports Council members, by introducing important principles in Sports Chiropractic field practice. This manual is intended to outline the chain of command, selection process and field ethics.
It is hoped that following this guideline will allow for consistent operation of events, foster a team approach, aid inter-professional relations and promote the practice of chiropractic within the realm of sports injuries.
It is the hope of the ACA Sports Council that each of its members follow these principles allowing the profession to present the best possible impression to the public, and other sports health care providers inside and outside the arena of Sports Chiropractic.
