Hope everyone is having a great week! This week is my worst
academic week so far this trimester: Chest radiology quiz on
Monday, clinical nutrition quiz on Tuesday, psychopath midterm on
Thursday, and Rehab and Botanicals 2 midterms on Friday. Yay
(sarcasm lol). Overall, this 7th trimester hasn't been that bad
yet, but this week will define the rest of the trimester so I'm
going to ramp up the studying. I've been slacking on school
studying lately as I've been putting all my time into old seminar
notes studying! I CANNOT STRESS IT ENOUGH people, if you've been
reading this blog you understand how important it is to go to
If you were to ask me, "Hey Christian, what are the best things
to learn at NUHS?"
My reply would be, "Learn how to 1) palpate any bone on anyone
at anytime; 2) adjust any bone on anyone at anytime; and 3) muscle
test any muscle on anyone at anytime."
Those are the highest value traits to have as a chiropractor.
Think about it. You might be the smartest person in the world and
be able diagnose every disease National teaches us. But if you
can't adjust and treat--who would pay for a diagnosis if you can't
treat? MDs can diagnose and they can at least give a drug (even if
it doesn't work). DCs need to be able to diagnose AND TREAT. DCs
need a unique combination of academic smarts and kinesthetic
Chiropractic is a beautiful combination of science and art that
treats the person in a holistic way few other doctors out there can
boast. Learn the academics and build your clinic with your hands.
The public doesn't know how smart we are coming out of National.
They know chiropractors adjust "low backs." So, fix the stuff they
"expect" you to, and BLOW THEIR MINDS with the education you get
from National. Seriously, I've yet to come across someone who's
been like, "Wow, you guys don't get enough education." Haha.
This past weekend featured the Frat/Sorority combined 80's
Party! Each trimester, the frat and sorority muster up something
creative and put on an event that is a refreshing change from the
same ole' same ole'! This trimester featured a themed party in the
NUHS gym decked out in 1980's décor. They had colorful balloons,
80's Pandora mix, spiked punch, Twister, 80's themed picture place,
and some classic adult games. I want to congratulate my friends for
putting together the hilarious decorations and plenty of balloon
spin kicks (ask Kendall).
