Needless to say he was utterly wrong. They had to keep the car overnight from one failed guess to the other ($1000of work at this point). It was only when they stopped looking at my car as part of a common group that they ended up on the right track, annnnd had to undo all the theorized work they had put in? ————————- Of course I had to relay this situation to the ??and ??therapy. The body is very intricate, and although there are common conditions that present certain symptoms, it’s the therapists responsibility to ensure the “common” thing doesn’t overshadow their critical thinking skills. We all suffer the effects of gravity, physical stresses, emotional stresses etc, but no two people distribute tensile forces in the same manner within the body.
