International Federation of Sports Chiropractic is a very strong partner of CSIT since many years. FICS is an international organization which promotes sports chiropractic around the world. At the 6th World Sports Games 2019 in Tortosa and the Deltebre Region it is represented by 22 specialists from seven different countries.
„About one thirds of the athletes have been treated by us“, says Thomas Jeppesen from Denmark who is working at the beach volley site at San Carles de la Ràpita. „Of course we do the job we are here for. But we have already treated jelly fish hives and sun exhaustion.“ They even had to support medical staff and ambulances to solve an unusual black series of injuries on Thursday at basketball venue.
The more than 3000 self employed chiropractics of the FICS work voluntarily for a lot of events like the WSG worldwide. Apart from sports idealism over all, they rate these jobs as a perfect promotion for their profession which becomes more and more important. Tim Ray from the USA and Lotte Langhoff from Denmark are the heads of the whole team in their white shirts to be seen at almost all venues of the WSG 2019.
