Default New to Soma Simple

Hello, My name is Danielle and I am a third year PT student. I am currently on my third clinical and was introduced to Soma Simple by my clinical instructor (smikolic). I am interested in learning more about PT and getting up to date resources and connections with other therapists.

Hi Danielle! Welcome to SomaSimple!

I'm sure smikolic will guide you to whatever she wants you to see, but if any of us can be of any help, please just ask.

Welcome Danielle to SS.

I'm guessing the thoughts and ideas presented to you from Stephanie may be a little different from what you have done at your other clinicals? Enjoy.

Welcome, Danielle.

If Stephanie hasn't already suggested it, I would recommend you take a look at the "Forum Moderators' Current Consensus on Pain" and the "Forum Moderators' Consensus on the Culture of SomaSimple" threads (just type/cut-and-past these into the search box and the links to the threads will appear on the list). The former has a fairly up-to-date reading list, which unfortunately you probably haven't been exposed to in any depth in PT school.

Happy reading and discussing!

We have five 7-week clinicals. I am currently in the end of my 4-weeks on my third clinical.

Welcome Danielle,

I introduce my students to SS too and even help them through the registration process if needed. But they don't post. I expect you'll benefit from participating here in ways my students won't.

What school are you studying at?

Welcome Danielle,

I wish I'd have the opportunity and the guts to join a site like this as a student. You have an opportunity to learn the thought process from people who love to think, learn, and move forward in progressing PT.
