  • Understanding and Managing Pain

    A document provided by Ian.

    Understanding and Managing Pain

    I'll add the comments made by Ian, tomorow.
    Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. L VINCI
    We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances. I NEWTON

    Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not a bit simpler.
    If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough. Albert Einstein

      I must agree. The "scientific" comment about chiro is totally pseudo-scientific!
