The International Sports Chiropractic Association (ISCA) is an International association incorporated in Washington, DC, for the primary purpose of interaction and liaison with the WOA. It was initially formed Drs Tom Hyde, Stephen J. Press & Dale Richardson in 2005.

History

Prior to the 2002 Games in SLC, Dr Tom Hyde had established a strong relationship with Sr. José Rodriguez (José was working with the WOA), was asked by José if he would be interested in supplying DC's to work at the WOA Hospitality Center at the Olympic games in Salt Lake City. Dr. Hyde took that request to FICS while a member of their Board and was told that they were not interested. Ultimately, when another FICS source was unable to get them into the Games, Dr. Hyde called José who offered an opportunity for DC's to work in the WOA Hospitality Center. This relationship resulted in supplying over 30 Sports Chiropractors services at those Games.

Then José invited Tom to El Salvador for the Central American and Caribbean Games (CACG's). Dr. Hyde contacted Chiropractors in Mexico and they provided a Chef-de- Mission for the Games. During the Games, this excellent group of DC's worked hand in hand with the Medical and Physiotherapy staffs.

When the next CACG's and Bolivariano Games were to be contested, José again contacted Dr. Hyde who was no longer a FICS Board member. Due to issues arising between the WOA and the FICS Board, the WOA no longer wished to work with FICS but did wish to work directly with Dr. Hyde. Dr. Hyde was told the WOA did not wish to work with an individual, and so, the "International Sports Chiropractic Commission" (ISCC, now the International Sports Chiropractic Association {ISCA}) was formed.

Since that time, the WOA asked the ISCC (ISCA) to provide DC's for the Pan American Games in the Dominican Republic in 2003, then the Olympic Games in Athens, Torino, and Beijing. Offers were also extended to participate in the CACG's in Colombia and the Bolivariano Games also in Colombia. Dr. Hyde recruited Parker College of Chiropractic to assist in providing financial support in the form of products badly needed by the various countries competing. ISCA continues to enjoy an excellent relationship with the World Olympians Association.
