Having spent a recent weekend at the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s Regional Conference, there was a lot of great research and information presented over those days – some challenging previous ideas and understandings, some introducing new theories, and others explaining why things happen the way they do.
It’s this type of work and effort that people in the health and fitness industry NEED to put in to learn from the experience of specialists and researchers, so that together we can progress our common knowledge as a professional industry and put together the most effective strategies to help our patients/clients. It’s easy to get caught up in the “I’m done with school” mindset, but I see my chiropractic school education as simply a solid foundation from which I can build upon with the latest research and innovations to really bring me to the level of expertise that my patients expect and deserve.
Having attended a seemingly endless number of courses/seminars/lectures, it’s a humbling experience to see how much valuable information there still is to learn in every field, but at the same time, it comes with the excitement that comes with getting to hone and refine your craft that I always look forward to. Never stop learning.
