They say hindsight is always 20/20 and I’ve never met a business owner who didn’t have a list a mile long of things they wish they had done differently in the beginning. In my time teaching in higher education and in the years I’ve spent teaching post-graduate courses to thousands of healthcare pros and students around the globe, I have never met one person who’s path to success wasn’t lined with failures and missteps.
So as I sit and reflect on my own near-misses and dumb mistakes along the way, I thought it would be helpful to draft a short list of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in my two decades as a business-owner.
As we look ahead to 2022, we thought it would be fun to say THANK YOU to the hundreds of practitioners and students each year that tell others about our courses. Word-of-mouth has been the single biggest driver of course attendance and we appreciate each and every time our courses are recommended. Starting January 1st, we would like to offer a little incentive to those of you that share the love by telling others about our courses.

If you've ever played a sport, you are well aware of the constant hunger that seems to plague young athletes. Pre-game meals are a ritual for many teams and often times these dinners are loaded with high-carbohydrate, high-calorie items aimed at providing the fuel needed for game play.
But aside from these team meals, are many of these athletes putting any thought into how they fuel their bodies outside of the hours right before the "big game?"
As a an educator and conservative manual practitioner, words really matter to me. When I’m teaching, it’s just as important for practitioners and students to understand why they’re performing a particular treatment and what they’re affecting as it is for them to understand the how of the treatment application.
And, I would also argue, using the correct choice of words is imperative when it comes to conveying information, whether you’re speaking to patients or other practitioners.
For example; you may have heard a doctor or therapist rationalizes using myofascial release or instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation to “break up scar tissue” or “break up adhesions.”
But what does this even mean?
This unique course offering takes our FAKTR concepts and applies them to the assessment and treatment of peripheral nerve entrapments–de-mystifying these syndromes and providing you with treatments you can apply immediately on Monday morning.
In this video interview, our Director of Education, Dr. Todd Riddle sat down with our two FAKTR PNE instructors to discuss the new course and answer important questions regarding these common patient presentations.
Often times with a limited budget or reliance on student loan allowances (we see you students), it isn’t a question of whether or not you want or even need to attend a continuing education course–it all boils down to whether you have the means to make it happen.
Our parent company, Southeast Sports Seminars aims to change all of that by introducing payment plans for all of their live courses.
