National Sports Council
UAE

Welcome to the National Chiropractic Sports Council UAE.

Thanks to the Emirates Chiropractic Association Executive Board, especially Dr. Vanda Corbett DC (former President of the ECA), we have been recognized by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce as a branch of the ECA.

Mission Statement

The goal of the NCSC UAE is to promote sports chiropractic and make it available to athletes and teams wherever possible.

We are part of global network called the Fédération International de Chiropratique du Sport
(FICS). One of their roles is to coordinate with many of the National Chiropractic Sports Councils
to create teams to provide sports chiropractic to major games. Working with many International
Federations, many of us have attended the Olympics, the World Games, and many World
Championship events over the years.

ABOUT THE PRESIDENT OF THE NCSC UAE

My name is Paul Cheung. I graduated in the UK and I have been in practice since 1990. As a
sports chiropractor, I have dedicated most of my career working in sports and actively promoting the benefits of chiropractic to many sporting disciplines. The acknowledgement of chiropractic in sports, and the appreciation shown by many athletes simply validates chiropractic health care. It really makes a difference to the function and performance of the human body.

THE BENEFITS OF SPORTS CHIROPRACTIC

This specialist kind of MSK management has helped people to return-to-play, sustain them and
also help injury prevention. In some cases, it has improved performance (naturally) which has
been measured by the stopwatch, much to the delight of the athletes, coach and teams. We have worked alongside sports medicine doctors and physiotherapists, to provide athletes with the best spectrum of healthcare available.
