  • Hello from NYC

    Hi all, my name is Cameron, and I am a PT student at NYU. I have been a lurker (is that still the correct word?) here for a little over a year now, but finally decided I would create an account and formally introduce myself.

    I have learned so much from reading the forums, as well as the personal blogs/facebook posts/etc, and I can honestly say I would not be the same student I am today if it weren't for all of you. So, thank you, and hello. I hope to continue learning from this great community.

    Cameron

              Welcome aboard, Cameron.

              Please remember - participation/lurking here may be great for improving your patient care, but is not necessarily a good way of passing classes, impressing CIs, or prepping for your boards.

              Keep your eye on the prize too!

              Respectfully,

                Glad to see you here, Cameron. Try not to spend too much time on here while you're studying for a test. I've already made that mistake and it doesn't end well.

                  Hello Cameron!

                  Have you begun your clinicals? I'm a PT in the Oswego County in Upstate NY. There are a couple of ortho clinics in the area who practice based on modern pain science. Unfortunately, the medical center I work at has put student clinicals on hold due to various issues. The other clinic that understands pain science is in the Syracuse. I can get their contact info for you if you are interested.

                  You may find that clinicians will find terms like fear avoidance, catastrophization, threat response, therapeutic alliance, the neuromatrix model and etc are unfamiliar. But we are all learning

                    Diane, I was not, but did watch your talk online. I will NOT be missing it this year though!

                        Keith, I hear you, and it is something I struggle with - especially as the next semester approaches. As long as I am strategic with my (school) education and CI interactions, I think I'll be ok

                            Hi Rex, great to meet you! I am just now finishing up one of my affiliations, but will have two more next year. That's very kind of you to offer, and I might just PM you in the future for details. Are you from California?
