Musculoskeletal pain in Europe
As a chiropractic physician, I am not surprised that the authors were basically beating up on the medical profession in their handling of musculoskeletal complaints. I see many patients in my office who’s cases were not handled properly. I do not fault allopathic medicine for their lack of training and knowledge in musculoskeletal medicine–there is so much to learn it really is its own curriculum There just is not enough time in medical school to learn all of it. What I do have a problem with is physicians handling musculoskeletal complaints when they are not familiar or trained in them.
