You probably don't need to go anymore than that... unless you can foot the bill and are seeing good effects still.


Oh yeah, and it's not just docs/pharma that does it. Most of the health professions are like this as well. There's some terrible PT clinics out there (good thing I don't work at one) as well as sham chiros.

Orthotics are waaaaaaaay overprescribed as well.
I'd kind of forgotten about this thread....

This is a good point Steven. My cousin works in what sounds like a great PT office while she's awaiting word on PT school. The guy who runs the practice is actually building his own orthotics to work people away from them. Basically trying to work a progression for people who actually need them, back to normal walking (as normal as walking with shoes can be). I hear he does some really cool and innovative things in getting people fixed up.
