I’ve said before that I’ve learned A LOT in the last 2 years. I used to think I could help anyone with back and neck pain. I can help a lot of people, and did. I can give some really good information. The certification that I have and the way I used to treat back pain is a mostly hands off approach. The certification I have taught me to teach patients about their problem, show them what to do, and then put the responsibility on them to do it a lot at home. I think that part is awesome. I love the idea of making people take responsibility for themselves. HOWEVER, there is A LOT to be said for therapeutic touch. Humans are not just a bunch of bones connected with tendons and ligaments. That’s pretty much how I viewed the human body before the stroke. I was very mechanical minded. Well that has changed drastically. Drastically.
