Western medicine has taken us down a road of specialization with regards to the body.

We are compartmentalizing the body into various pain areas, labeling these pain areas and diagnosing it as a ‘back problem’ or a ‘hip problem’ or a ‘shoulder problem’.

We are training our Therapists and General Practitioners to study these areas in Isolation – so we say about a back, that your discs are warn or you have an impinged nerve, and in your knee you have bony spurs or cartilage damage.

Then as Therapists we take on these diagnosis and start to treat where the local area of pain is.
