    Medicine is a young profession. No matter what form you choose to take (MD, PT, DC, RN, PA, or any other initials out there). Not too far in the past we were prescribing frontal lobotomy’s for all behavioral issues (until 1977 in most of the U.S) Not to far in the past we hung people for thinking the world wasn’t flat. In the very near past we counted Pluto as a plant in our solar system.

    I guess what I’m saying is that no one profession has figured out how to heal the human body of all its aliments yet. All professions have their humble beginnings and theory’s that don’t pan out or didn’t pan out. All professionals have people in their profession that give a bad perception of that profession. Are all lawyers scumbags? It’s in our nature to criticize that which we don’t understand. We as humans still don’t understand much of our world let alone how it works.

    So can we say that physical therapists are more geared toward the muscle reeducation and rehabilitation aspect of healthcare. Neurosurgeons are geared more toward correcting spinal and brain disease and damage. Chiropractors are geared toward realignment of the spine and musculoskeletal disorders.

    Almost everyone that gets into a medical field is in it to help people. This is the common ground. The common goal of all healthcare. Regardless of what aspect of healthcare we choose. Lets keep this in mind before we criticize other professions.

    If you are interested in a field of medicine, go spend a few days with that type of professional and see if the BS that they are preaching is the kind of BS you can shovel on a daily basis.
