Dr Scott says
In my generation of clinicians, we were taught
- Proper examination and assessment
- Develop a working diagnosis
- Tests-X Rays-Imaging should confirm what you already know
Not the other way around
Tests and images do not MAKE the diagnosis, they should CONFIRM the diagnosis !
Back to BASICS
Treat the PERSON, not the FILE!
80% of non-emergency doctor visits are Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal in nature.
Fortunately, most are not pathological or life-threatening.
Overkill: Many back-pain patients are NOT surgical candidates.
You can’t cut out PAIN
Client: My surgeon says I need surgery.
Dr Scott: Did you read the door?
PAIN & Discomfort can OFTEN be reduced/resolved with proper exercise/rehab and with
non-pharmaceutical treatment IF people are willing to do the work
Dr Scott: How many hours in a day?
How many hours are you doing rehab?
Answer: Probably not enough
Unfortunately, millions of people per year walk out of a medical office with
non-pathological, unresolved back/body pain and discomfort,
without a cohesive plan for rehab, hence no hope for recovery.
