The more I post the more I have people questioning. Maybe because a lot of what I post is so difficult for people to understand? Or maybe because some people are not ready to change their beliefs? Maybe it's a fear of change? Or maybe they are not ready to realise that some of the things they were taught may be a little out of date? I don't know.
When I post about my clients I can't always explain the results I get. The body is so unbelievably complex that we may truly never understand. But I know what I see. And I know the results that I get from my own clients.
I know that so many people who come into my office with 'tight' hip flexors have NO shortness in the muscle...because I have tested them.
I know that many people who have a limited range of motion within their hamstrings have tethered sciatic nerves.....because I have tested them.
I know that the QL can influence the leg length. How do I know? Because I have tested leg length, worked on the area and then retested.
I also know that QL is not always to blame for a Leg length issue. I know that piriformis, glutes and upper traps can all play a part. How? Because I have tested!!
All I intend my posts to do is to get people thinking. To question what they have been told. To keep questioning it. To increase their own knowledge from appropriate sources. To test and retest for themselves. To see that every person is different. To accept that if you are doing the same thing but are not seeing any results then you need to look elsewhere. To stop chasing pain and see the body as a whole. To understand that biology, psychology and social factors all play a part in our health.
I get results and so do my clients. And at the end of the day that is what matters. And I will continue to update my knowledge, I will do my research, I will test and retest every single day to ensure that what I'm saying is right for each of my clients. And as times change, as new research comes in I will admit where I was wrong, I will update my skills and I will do what is needed to continue to help my clients.
But just because I do something different doesn't mean it's wrong. There is more than one way to skin a cat. But don't just believe what I or anyone else says. Do your own research. And don't just settle there. Things change so quickly that what we once believed to be true may no longer be the case.
