To mark the 1st Year Anniversary of business, I'm starting a blog centered on manual therapy and healthcare...................certainly other topics will be included. For my first post, I've chosen a bit of information about my background.
After a few months as a new graduate (Mayo Clinic, 1988), I found myself working as a staff PT at Mayo. Quickly becoming frustrated with the lack of challenge in the conventional medical system, I sought change. A new job found my young family in southern Oregon (Klamath Falls). It was here that I was introduced to a teaching institution, the Ursa Foundation in Seattle, WA (now Ursa Educational Institute in Sacramento, CA).
Over the past 26 years of classes in manual therapy, and numerous patients arriving with different afflictions from sport injuries to headaches to back pain, the flaws in our medical system have become obvious to me.
A couple flaws / false assumptions to spark your thoughts:
1) The pain we feel is where the problem exists.
2) Conventional providers offer everything we need.
With that, I'm off.....to another class in Sacramento - "A Comparison of Several Manual Therapy Approaches to Treatment of the Face and Skull"
Your thoughts, comments, suggestions for future topics?????
