Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
“This afternoon, I was thinking about how many therapies I have tried, at great expense and to no effect. Each time, the doctor or therapist blamed me, one way or another, for the therapy not working.
I spent one year in therapy with a particular chiropractor, going two times a week. Week after week, she’d scold me, saying “You never hold the adjustment. What are you doing?”
Then we’d go over everything I’d done in the intervening days, and she’d say, “OH! You drank a margarita? Alcohol is a complete no-no. It totally negates the effect of an adjustment.”
We went on like that, week after week, until I’m sure she was scrambling her brain looking for new excuses as to why her therapy wasn’t working for me.
Another time, I was sent to a medical massage therapist that had spent years training all around the world. She was certified in more than 100 different modalities of massage therapy and was even going to China and Tibet once a year to teach. I remember thinking; Wow! If you can teach the Asians something about the therapy they developed, you must be good!
Again, I spent a year in non-productive therapy. And like the chiropractor, each week the massage therapist would grill me on what I’d done that week, pick out some seemingly benign activity and say, “Well, there you are. That’s why you’re in pain. You can’t expect my therapy to work if you’re going to do things like wash the dishes.”
I now know that if a therapy isn’t working, it’s a clear signal that the doctor or therapist has failed to identify the real source of your pain.”
As a doctor, I’m embarrassed to say that what my patient recounted in her email, happens all too frequently to patients suffering with chronic muscle and joint pain. That is; if you, the patient, do not respond to the practitioner’s particular therapy, they may assume that the fault is yours.
This misplacement of blame is much easier for the practitioner to accept, than the possibility that:
- they have not found the true source of your pain
- hence their therapy is not addressing your specific pain problem
- therefore their therapy is ineffective.
In other words; if the true source of your constant pain has not been identified, your therapy will be addressing something other than the cause of your pain. This means that the therapy will only be partially effective (or not work at all) and your pain will not go away. The end result may be ill-placed recriminations on the part of your practitioner and a lifetime of pain management for you, the patient.
When choosing a healthcare practitioner, first look for a professional who will listen to you, is open minded and non judgmental. Then make sure that the practitioner is willing to work with you to find the actual source of your musculoskeletal pain problem and will use a therapy that effectively treats it.
