Hammer and nails

You have back pain.

The podiatrist says you need orthotics.

The physiotherapist says you need dry needling.

The chiropractor says your back needs releasing.

The personal trainer says you need to get stronger.

The therapist says you need to work on your mind.

The surgeon says you need a surgery.

The yoga teacher says you need to stretch.

The massage therapist says you need a massage.

And Tony says you need to eat more Frosted Flakes.

We can’t all be right.

But the fact that you’re getting wide-ranging opinions is a sign of a society with an over-specialisation problem.

And often, this can all occur within the same profession.

Which is a good enough reason to get a second opinion.
