  • Introducing myself...again:)

    Hello all-
    I found Soma through a co-worker a couple years ago and have lurked on and it another go this time and intend to be more interactive. I am a PT in Colorado in the outpatient orthopedic setting for the past 6 years. I feel bit burned out from time to time as I try to find my place in this profession. Over the past year I have made quite a paradigm shift with my thinking from a primarily biomechanic-based thinking and just throwing in pain science in for chronic pain patients, to a more BPS model for every patient. Some topics that interest me (and I personally need to work on) are letting go of outcomes, figuring out where manual therapy fits into practice and how to explain it effects simply to patients, how much to pay attention to posture as it relates--or may not relate--to pain, and so much more! Any guidance of forums that may relate to these topics would be much appreciated. Thank you all for your efforts and contributions!
