Advanced Lower Quadrant
Wednesday and Thursday were the last 2 days in this 6 day block of dry needling courses.
Congratulations to Allan for traveling from Sweden to undertake a full 6 days of dry needling training. Allan was pretty keen on surfing so have included a pararoma that I took camping the weekend before at Cape Arid NP - not too many other campers on this beach! Just us, waves, whales and one seal.
Wednesday was a pretty full on day, with a 2 hour wet lab anatomy session at UWA. Judging from feedback this was really well received and the over whelming consensus was that it was better having the Wet Lab in the middle of the courses, rather than right at the start. In this way participants were really tuned into wanting to test their anatomy observation skills, having enhanced their palpation skills in the 'dry lab' so to speak. For this reason, dates for Wet Labs have been arranged in 2016 and will now fall within the teaching block of 6 days in January and July.
Discussions were wide ranging as usual, we shared a 2 year old birthday and found that in general, trigger points were camera shy. Each course is a bit different :)
Couple of comments from participants;
"Best aspects were the close supervision, ability to ask questions and discussions amongst the groups" Sarah
"Practical aspects of anatomy and especially return to the wet lab" Kate
Thanks to all participants for making this course special and sharing great clinical insights. Till next time. Doug
