Thoughts from Quebec City- Day 2

Take home message from Day 2 at the IFOMPT conference-

  • It takes 10 years or 10,000 hours to be an expert at chess or just about anything else.
  • So if posed with this question, how would you choose. Would you prefer a doctor who recently graduated at the top of their class or a doctor with 6 years experience who graduated at the top 1/3 of their class. If you chose the later, you are in the majority. Research shows that most people side with experience. It’s the fundamental difference between ‘basic formal analytical education’ vs. ‘post-graduate experiential knowledge’.
  • Cervical manipulation is a safe intervention when it is specific and utilized at the right time with the right patient.
  • French food in Quebec City is the real deal. The best rabbit and duck that I have had prepared in multiple ways at the le lapin saute.
