Default Hello All

I am currently working as an outpatient PT in a MTF (military treatment facility) near Washington, DC. I was intrigued by posts from Diane Jacobs at Science Based Medicine and was led here. After spending a few days reading threads and information here, I think I will stay a while. I have been increasingly frustrated at lack of evidence and efficacy of many common PT interventions (US, MFR, etc). Look forward to a lot of learning.

Thanks,

Gavin

Welcome.

The best therapist in the US Army, according to me, is a moderator here - Major Jason Silvernail. I'm sure he's glad to see you arrive, and, as the father of a vet, so am I.

Welcome Gavin.
Good to see you here - make sure you have lots of time. Reading here can get addictive and seductive - and can play havoc on sleep patterns.
