Very interesting, I really enjoyed the lecture and have learnt a lot

Exciting information, though I would argue there may be injury unpercieved by doctors and it is presumtous, and arrogant of them to declare the patient has no further tissue injury when it may be the doctors only discovered one of multiple, yet undetected injuries. The entire health system is flawed when individual doctors, and insurance companies consider money,above thorough investigation. This results in some chronic pain sufferers wasting their lives searching the medical community for someone with the professionalism to observe and listen, and think with their minds not their commitment to hospital limits on test and scans
