Default Hello and Thank You

Hi,

My name is Brian and I am a chiropractor working in the Uk. I have been lurking for a while now and can say that SS has utterly rocked my world view...in a very good way . I am amazed at the depth of knowledge and perspective offered here and would like to say a big, big thank you to all who post so regularly. I learn each time I log on and it has fundamentally challenged and altered my understanding and the way in which I work.

I will say from the outset that I do not believe in 'subluxation' and I abhor the 'marketing' used by some chiropractors. I have been strongly influenced by David Butler and Lorimer Moseley's work on pain, by Diane's work on DNM, by Barrett's work on instinctive movement and by Feldenkrais. It makes sense to me, I am able to justify it intellectually and the people I treat appreciate it. So, thank you once again and I look forward to participating more in threads.

Brian,

Welcome. You are influenced by just about everyone who has also profoundly influenced me. You left out The Ohio State Buckeyes however.

No matter, you sound like you're ready for all of this and have already altered your approach for the good of your patients.

Not easy.

Brian welcome to SS, looking forward to your comments.

Based on your intro, I would guess you maybe feel like a little of an outsider when talking to your fellow chiropractors.

Welcome, Brian.

We've seen many chiros come and go- only a few of the braver ones have remained here.

It sounds like you are notable exception with your rejection of "subluxation" and distaste for chiro marketing methods. Very refreshing.

Thanks for your welcomes guys. Barrett I'll look into the The Ohio State Buckeyes and see if they do it for me . I certainly intend to stick around and I'll try to be brave . Kory I do tend to feel a bit of an outsider when talking to fellow chiros but that's ok by me.

Thanks again all

Brian
