I want to compliment all of the individuals who have spent years on this site attempting to better our practice through a better understanding of the nervous system. It appears that all of this work is finally making headway, at least it appears to be causing discussion on sites outside of somasimple.
I was just on EIMs blog and am glad to see in the comments that others appear to be accepting our practice limitations too...
Today, Mike Reinold linked my article "all about pain" for his readers to learn more about pain: Mike's blog
The Manual Therapist, Erson Religioso, allowed me to share information on pain science and has linked to several articles from Moseley, etc. for his readers.
Tweets coming out of CSM participants appeared to be geared towards PTs understanding the biopsychosocial model as well as pain science.
Great job guys... some have thought of "this group" as hostile in the past, but it appears there is a shift within the profession (and I attribute it to hard work from many different groups, including somasimple). I am very fortunate to be surrounded by like-minded clinicians in my Pittsburgh facilities, and hope that others will begin to experience this too (if they already haven't)...

Joe and others from SS, great lists over at EIM blog. I'll be curious to see that thread unfold.

Mike and Erson recently linked some of my articles as well.
And I have noticed many conversations about pain science on Facebook by people who have mostly "mesodermal" oriented fans - Meyers, Dalton, Chaitow, Liebenson, the Rolfing group, etc.
I definitely sense a change. I think that Moseley TED video may have been a turning point.
Thanks to everyone at SS for so much of the heavy lifting.

I think, and perhaps Bernard can confirm that we have had several peaks recently of members online with the most recent on the 16th of this month at 191 users.
Am I correct in this and if so doe sit indicate an uptick in interest?

I think so too, ANdy, but in the past there has been an upsurge when something controversial is being debated. Nonetheless, maybe the message is getting through to quite a few more amygdalae and insulae..
