Default Nicolas, Kinesiologist (or physiotherapist), from Chile

I should have done this a long time ago, but well better later than never.
My name is Nicolas Sepulveda, I'm a chilean kinesiologist (physiotherapist), graduated in January 2008 from University of Chile. In 2010 I studied a diploma in orthopaedic manual therapy from the same university, certificated by the international academy of orthopaedic medicine-US.
In 2010 I helped to create the chronic pain unit at the trauma hospital I use to work along with a occupational therapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker, anesthesiologist and a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician.
I'm currentely unemployed because I resign my old job and because in Chile there's a complete lack of control over how many profesionals come out each year from the universities and it's very easy to create a university. So, there are too many physios for our current population.
In Chile I have tryed to keep up to date with pain science thanks to the database of my university, the Explain Pain course I took this year with Bob Johnson, and many websites and blogs from Diane Jacobs, Paul Ingraham, Todd Hargrove, Jason Silvernail, Barrett Dorko, Craig Liebenson, Bronnie Thompson, Michael Shacklock, Cory Blickenstaff, Will Steward, all the folks from the NOI group, and many others.
My favorite subjects of study are: pain science, manual therapy, exercise physiology, science based physiotherapy.
That's all folks! (for now)

I've been having fun for a long time now, the thing is I'm still a little self-conscious about my english level, because to get involved in some of the discussions I've read I need to have more than a good level of english, but little by little...but I love it all. Specially the paradigm of having "no paradigms" I love it here...

Welcome. If I'm not mistaken, we've corresponded somehaow in the past.

Your english is wonderful, better than Rocabado's when he came here in '76. From Santiago, Rocky worked and taught with me in Atlanta and we remain good friends despite having very little contact lately.

Have you heard of him?
