I have been a "lurker" on Soma Simple for about 3 weeks now. I have gotten the chance to read through several threads and become familiar with some of the recommended readings on pain. I find myself visiting SS multiple times a day when I have time between patients. I am currently on my 3rd clinical and was lucky enough to be introduced to SS by my CI. As a student, I am itching to progress my knowledge base. Personally, I realize that much of the information on here will take time to read through and understand. It will also require numerous re-reading of articles and threads to fully comprehend what is presented. However, I am eager to start the journey and contribute when appropriate.
Aside from all this excitement of being introduced to a dynamic, informative, thought provoking discussion I can't help but wonder if I would have every stumbled across SS or been introduced to SS if it wasn't for my CI. What my CI has introduced me to and what SS has to offer is a bit "different" from what I have learned in school. Is that why I have never heard of it? With these thoughts and feelings in mind, all I want to do is hold a class meeting to share my experience and offer the same introduction of SS to my fellow classmates that my CI gave to me.
Another thought I have is.....How I am going to turn off my new thoughts and present thoughts that my school wants to hear? (Ie. Yes, I would provide PROM to a patient who is s/p TKA with a rating of 5/10 pain to promote an increase in flex/ext ROM. and Yes, I will prescribe prone hang to the HEP.....even though I know the research supports active ROM for facilitation of gains in ROM and has limited evidence supporting PROM.) What about when I take the board exam?
Overall, I am very thankful for my education and the skills I have aquired over the first two years of DPT school. I am even more thankful that I was introduced to the information on here. I now have access to both "trains of thought" and can sift through, comprehend/analyze, and challenge when necessary.
