If such a simple, elegant procedure exists to treat pain, then why don’t more people know about it? I can understand why I didn’t learn about this in medical school since I graduated in 1996. But, why isn’t this taught currently? Why don’t my colleagues know about this? Why is it viewed with such suspicion? What else is out there to treat different conditions that I didn’t learn about in medical school? It turns out to be a lot!
Even though med school is hard, I loved it. I attended a great school and had a group of really cool classmates. We studied really hard and had a great time in between intense testing sessions. But even with all of this hard work, you can’t learn everything about medicine in 4 years or the following years of residency.
I heard someone describe being stuck in a paradigm as “living in a box and not knowing there is another viewpoint outside of that box.” Seeing LPIT be so effective helped me break out of the current paradigm of treating pain and musculoskeletal conditions. It has also opened my eyes to potentially treat other conditions outside of their potential paradigms.
