Shortly after graduation Dr. Yusavage enrolled in a post graduate program leading him to a specialty degree in Chiropractic Pediatrics named a DICCP degree. There are approximately 300 Diplomates in the entire world.
The Diplomate of the ICA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics (DICCP) is a Board Certified credential in pediatrics for doctors of chiropractic. Doctors with the DICCP credential are doctors who have completed this post-graduate specialist level training through a chiropractic college and demonstrated competency in both written and oral examinations administered by the ICA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics. This certification covers aspects of pediatrics ---from pregnancy, birth, infancy to adolescence. Each stage of pregnancy and of a child's development are covered in-depth so the practicing doctor of chiropractic acquires greater skills and competencies in a wide range of evaluative, diagnostic and assessment procedures, as well as corrective and adjustment skills for different age groups and clinical conditions.
Dr. Yusavage believes the modern doctor will teach the patient how to live a healthier life through education and better lifestyle choices. This new model of healthcare will push patients to be more responsible for their own health. This is the new chiropractic wellness based model of healthcare.
