We finished up our Activator elective two weekends ago. It was only two weekends early on in the trimester, which was really nice because I will already be equipped to use it in the clinic when we are cleared August 18.
It was a good weekend. We spent Saturday mostly reviewing and brushing up on all the skills we had learned the previous weekend and preparing for the practical and written test we were going to have the following day. Saturday was also the Bix 7 race. It started at the same time our class started, but as a class we all went out to watch the start of it and see everyone run up Brady Street. I’ve seen the race twice now since I’ve been here, and it’s a really cool experience.
There were a couple people from my class that decided to run the course, but I didn’t get to see them. I didn’t get to stick around to see the Palmer Spine, either, which I heard was really cool and everyone did an awesome job. The pictures I saw looked really good! I had a couple friends participate in that this year. I have always wanted to but just never found the time.
We were in class all day Saturday just perfecting our technique, then came back bright and early Sunday to start the testing process. We reviewed for a little bit more on Sunday morning, then we were tested over the practical portion. We took the written portion shortly after. We were told everyone did very well. Then for about another hour he gave us a sneak peak into the next level of the course. It was a very interesting elective with a lot of good information. I am glad I took it and glad I will have that skill set for clinic and my own practice.
