    Hey everyone!

    My name is Eric Anderson. I graduated with a DPT last year from Hampton University and am currently practicing in Virginia. I work in a mostly outpatient clinic but pick up a few hours every week in the hospital next door. I am really looking forward to making more connections with like-minded clinicians.

      Hi Everyone!

      My name is Justin Baharally and I am a first-year student physical therapist. I attend the New York Institute of Technology's DPT program. I am currently interested in outpatient rehabilitation, wanting to work with any population type to help guide them along a path of strength and resilience. I love discussing and trying to be less wrong. So if anyone wants to discuss anything or simply chat, my IG name is @Baharolic

        Hello Everyone,

        I have been a practicing outpatient PT for about 2.5 years. I graduated with my DPT from Midwestern University in the suburbs of Chicago. I currently practice at hospital system in southeast WI as an outpatient PT. I am currently pursuing the MDT certification (McKenzie Method). I would recommend the textbooks written by Robin McKenzie for all young clinicians and students as personal reading material for great information on reliability of tests/measures, epidemiology, and natural history of musculoskeletal conditions. I would enjoy discussions about MDT and how it relates to athletic populations, barbell training, pain science, patient independence, and public health.

        I'm here from a PT perspective to gain understanding about pain science, patient education, building patient resiliency, and ideally implementing barbell training into practice and public health.

        I'm also here as a trainee because Jordan and Austin have made sense of some things about starting strength that didn't make sense, while still keeping some of the good from starting strength.

        Looking forward to great discussions and learning from everyone!

          I would encourage you to start a thread related to your beliefs on the efficacy of the McKenzie Method and we can discuss your aforementioned nuance. The typical statement of "everyone thinks they know 'x' but they do not" is used by many camps as a way of arguing their understanding is far more profound than what the literature would state. I would not recommend the textbooks of Robin McKenzie as the overall bolus of literature does not state that it is superior to any other method and my understanding of the reading is it has a propensity for a structuralist approach to explanation. I am willing to have that understanding changed if you can support it with the literature.

            I did not mean for the "everyone thinks they know 'x' but they do not" statement in my original post to come off as argumentative. I have removed it. It was included in the original post so that I was not judged by my McKenzie interest immediately as has happened before with colleagues. Derek, and anyone else interested, I have created a new thread to discuss the efficacy of the McKenzie Method and its compatibility to the barbell medicine philosophy.

            Here is the link to that thread: https://forum.barbellmedicine.com/fo...hod-discussion

              Hello, my name is Josh Bader. I graduated with my DPT in 2017. I took a job in a big hospital based company immediately out of school in the SF Bay Area. Worked mostly outpatient orthopedics, with 1-2 days/week in acute care setting. Recently left that job to work in a private practice ortho/sports med clinic, while building my own coaching practice. Attended the BBM seminar in Santa Cruz earlier this year.
              Look forward to interesting and thought provoking discussions!

                Hello! My name is Carsten Kaltofen (if you have troble with the name, call me Oven ) and I'am a psychology student from germany. Someday I want to be a psychotherapist with a specialty in painpsychotherapy. I think physicial activity is a crucial part of psychotherapy and pain management and therefore I'd like to learn to more about it from you PTs and doctors and trainers. I look forward to interesting discussions and being a driving force in the progress of the health care community.

                  Hi Everyone!
                  My name is Luke Utley, and I'm currently a 2nd year DPT student at the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences in Rochester, MN. My interests are currently in sports medicine and neurological rehab. I'm really just trying to find as many outlets as I can to take in new information from other students and clinicians!
