    Hello all,

    My name is Dan D'Egidio and I'm a 3rd year DPT student at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. My interests are in orthopedic/sports rehab and pain science. Luckily my university taught me a pretty solid amount about implementing pain science and empowering my patients, so I am here to sharpen my skills and continue to learn about how much I still don't know. I enjoy all things health and fitness related and I'm currently running the BBM endurance template as I train for my first Broad Street Run (which is likely not going to happen!) I've lurked around here for a while, so I'm looking forward to actually being an active member of this forum!

    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.

    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!

    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

    [QUOTE=
    I am currently pursuing the MDT certification (McKenzie Method). By the way, everyone thinks they know MDT and most do not (it's nuanced). 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.

    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!

    Hey Everyone!

    My name is Jahan Shiekhy, I am a 2nd year physical therapy student at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.

    I just started barbell lifting Fall 2018 after a long time of chronic pain and LOTS of fear avoidance, catastrophizing etc. Loving this sport! I am interested in learning about strength training for many patient populations, especially geriatric athletes and athletes with neurological disorders.

    Looking forward to learning and discussing here!

    Hello,

    My name is Ben DeLoach. I am a DPT student at Georgia Southern in Savannah, GA. I graduated from the University of Georgia with an Exercise Science degree and have been an infantry soldier in the Army National Guard for the last 6 years. I have a passion for strength training and was a personal trainer for 2 years during undergrad/post-grad. I'm hoping to expand my knowledge, learn how to examine evidence without bias, and learn how to be a better physical therapist. I also want to squat 500 lbs.

    Hey everyone,

    My name is Austin Boos. I am currently a third year medical student at Marian University in Indianapolis, Indiana. After graduation next year, I'll be pursuing a residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R / Physiatry). My specific career interests are: the application/utilization of strength training, nutrition and pain-science principles for various rehab populations ( i.e spinal cord injury, TBI, musculoskeletal disorders) . Look forward to meeting and interacting with other like-minded students and rehab professionals.
