Something more. Why it matters.

live think Oct 18, 2020

'Something more' has become an unexpected message in my life.  It started 6 years into my career when I started to recognize that my orthopedic population many times had something more going on. 

My client with hip impingement who we where able to clear functional mobility throughout her kinetic chain, yet still had mechanical provocation despite negative imaging.

My curiosity about 'something more' was enhanced when a clinical mentor directed me to expand my anatomy, and look into the relationship of the cecum to the R hip.  Yes, the viscera directly influences the musculoskeletal system and anatomy books demonstrated it.  One phone call with my mentor explaining how to confirm involvement with an assessment as well as a treatment technique had me hooked when 18 of the 20 clients I performed the treatment on came back on the next session and said some version of the following....'whatever we did last time, let's do it again.  That's the best I've felt in months.'  

In my prior blog How do you navigate your bias, I clarify our attention on serving others, embracing the Truth of what evidence is now supporting on a larger scale.

In Western medicine, traditional Cartesian dualism facilitates the biological reductionism of disease, supports medical practices that do not necessarily support healing and wellness, promotes a dispassionate and mechanistic approach to patient care, disempowers patients, and discourages humanistic ways of thinking that focus on the whole patient.  (Gendle, 2016)

I've experienced this, and so has every medical provider.

Here is where the 'something more' concept expands.... when speaking with peers and sharing them my journey into a holistic and integrative model, there is quite often resistance.  Sure, I get that given the foundation of our profession and education.  But when I inquire about their beliefs, they lack a willingness to see 'something more'.

Why this matters?

Your relationship with something more is your invitation to advancing your opportunities in life, not just your profession.

Something more can come in a variety of forms. 

  • Personal development
  • Role in leadership
  • Niche population
  • Clinical expertise
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Community involvement
  • Side hustle
  • Passion project
  • Etc.....

Being open to 'something more' will expand yourself.  Expand your perspective.  Expand your resources.  Expand your fulfillment.

It takes courage to step into something more.  It takes courage to step away from your comfort zone.  I invite you to discover how 'something more' can become a meaningful message in your life and transform your future.

Think.  Feel.  Live.  Differently.

I'm in, are you?
