  • Tip "Manual Therapists" new forum

    Erson Religioso has built a forum, Manual Therapists. (It's quite new, not a female to be seen so far..)

    It looks to be mostly mesodermal/operator/ortho in orientation.

    The mountain of Meso in most manual therapy forums makes me switch to the cycling weekly forum within 2 minutes. We have two languages and we are unable to communicate with each other.

      I joined yesterday. Perhaps we can interject some ecto into the conversations. Joe got it started it off well with his introduction and comment about biomechanics and posture.

        It's good to remind people that ecto isn't only about motor output. It is hugely relevant to skinput as well.

          Why?

          As is the case of many others out there not this one in particular,

          Do we need another? Is it going to be more evidence based than the slew that already exist?

          Is it going to be one man's forum for what in his opinion is evidence based?

          Maybe it will be some of those, maybe it won't but forums seem to be spreading like a rash are they improving the quality of information or degrading it?

          Can ppl actually tell? Or are they being led by one or more ppl at the helm intent on spreading their version of the truth of therapeutic care?

          Or is this egos, money and power?

          Regards

            I guess anyone has the right to start a forum if they want. I think this new one has the potential to become a haven for operatorial extremophiles.

                I just took a look at the "Introductions" thread over there. I saw a couple of comments about hoping that the conversations stay "civil" and "positive".

                I'm not sure if PTs need another discussion forum, but we definitely don't need a bunch of alphas wacking each other on the back and giving each other "attaboys" for all their great outcomes

                We'll see, I guess...

                  Maybe they feel the need to have a place to retreat, regroup. Maybe it's part of a natural process, an emergence, nature selecting out a certain subgroup of human primate social groomers.

                    Another site is physiobase.com which has been around for at least 15 years and hasn't changed a bit since it began. Not a bit of neuroscience in sight until you go to the neurology forum and even then....

                    Don't know why the link didn't work.

                      agree nari about the physiobase forum, was hopeful , however the general standard of understanding about MSK therapy there is very low.
                      The PhysioForum is not much better , a few cranks and wierdos , newbies and a strong representation from the subcontinent, most of whom seem lost in a therapy world circa 1950.
