A Cultist's View of Sciatica

baaaaa-herd-sheep-pictureA couple of days ago, my wife was talking to an older woman who was stricken with sciatica. Yes, I mean “stricken.” Horrible pain, can’t walk, needs assistance to do anything.

This woman went on and on about her symptoms. Then she went on and on about all of her medical tests and specialists and procedures. Then, she went on and on about how intelligent her doctors were. Really? If they’re so smart, how come whatever they do hasn’t worked, and will never work?

With medical cultists, results don’t count, and logic is suspended. Looking elsewhere? As one would say in my native land, New York, fugettaboutit! When my wife suggested Chiropractic, she said that she would consider it, but first, she had to wait for the results if the next test, and if positive, get one more corticosteroid shot, even though the several before did not work. “Getting to the cause” just didn’t strike a chord with her.

What might be the problem with the popular acceptance of Chiropractic? Perhaps it involves common sense. Mark Twain said “The problem with common sense is that it’s not that common.”
