Going To South America

Wow, it has been almost a month since my last post... shame on me.
This post is mostly to let you know I won't be around the next two weeks as I am going to South America (Santiago, Chile>Buenos Aires, Argentina>Patagonia region). But I promise to come back refreshed with much more frequent blog posts.

While I am away I will be thinking of adding to my presentation that I am working on for the clinic where I work. The topic is going to be inflammation from a therapeutic standpoint. Recent developments such as platelet rich plasma, prolotherapy, graston technique and not so recent developments such as cross friction massage and even the debate between ice and heat will all be part of this talk. When you have chronic conditions such as a tendonosis where the histology has changed, is the best course of action to recreate an inflammatory process to allow for the body to heal itself with some guidance? What is the role eccentric training can play in all of this... and so much more.

Any thoughts from you guys?

Happy Thanksgiving while I am away!
