It’s unfortunate, but the truth of the matter is that many practitioners here refuse to look at the body holistically. For instance, when I developed tenosynovitis in my thumb, I went to an orthopedic surgeon. They put injections into my thumb and sent me to physical therapy, where I did lots of exercises and had heat treatments and such. When nothing helped, the surgeon suggested surgery (this is my shocked face). It took a friend of mine, a massage therapist, to tell me the real problem was in my shoulder. The nerve problem there was keeping my hand from getting proper enervation and blood flow and keeping my thumb from healing properly.
A more recent example. I developed tinnitus in March of 2016. Not having learned my lesson, I went to an ENT (ear, nose, throat) specialist. He said there was no cure and nothing he could do, then charged me hundreds of dollars. Fortunately, the bastard is an idiot. But the success I’ve had treating it has come from “non-traditional” (in the us) methods like chiropractic.
