They’re back! Well, for most of you we are. The majority of you have read at least something one of us has written in anything from a newspaper format to the journal Spine. But, here we are again an in a new forum for us. What we’ve been asked to do is to write about rehab. Now this is something that we like. We’ve (in this column, we will often use the word we to designate something that at least one of us has done; sort of a Borg thing) written and spoken about rehab and even invented rehabilitation devices. But the format that we’d like to use for this column is the format that we use when we lecture. We want to talk to you just like we’d talk to an old friend. That’s right, just to you. Not the doc down the street or a professor in some college or the president of your alma matter. No, we’ve arranged to have this whole magazine sent to thousands of people just so we could have an enriching conversation with you, one of our old friends.
Now for some things that we want
1) We’re not any smarter than you are. No one is packing a lot more IQ points than the next guy, and that includes your favorite guru.
If, after you read these columns, you feel that you were having a conversation with old friends, then we’ve succeeded. But, as you know, old friends often indulge in a lot of good-natured banter; so, if we’re poking a little fun at you, just remember that we’re smiling.
Well, now you know a little bit about us, and, next time, we’ll chat about neck-related headaches and some rehab approaches to the problem. So until then, “Thanks, old friend, it’s always great to talk to you. We’ll talk again soon.”
