subjected too treatments/drugs under trial to determine the

Person to succumb to a particular disease, with blind, double
blind and placebo studies and peer reviewed trials.
Despite the profound efforts of
many dedicated scientists and research chemists, the world is
ridden with a list of untreatable illnesses and illnesses that
have no known cause, or cure.
No Person, it seems in a position of
authority asks "Why is this."
Not even as seem to be the modern day
norm using the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia...
Perhaps this will come.
It could be
considered there is not a single illness in the world, Medical
Science has a cure for, or knows the cause. Sometimes brilliant
management, yes, cure, suspect.
A lifetime of professional or personal management
techniques or medication is not to be seen as a cure.
Operations fall into a slightly
different category, no Person can surely criticise our brilliant
Or can they? Many
operations seem to offer a resolution, however, so many times the
condition returns in a different part of the body, or as in the
case of Pain it goes from acute to chronic, hence the reason the
Pain Clinics are so full, most of their work appears to come
straight from the surgeons where the operation to cure the Pain
was not effective.
Or is the
requirement of an operation only an admission Gold Standard,
Scientifically Proven Evidence Based medicine has not been
as successful as desired.

Bandolier came up and it is very

My belief as

therefore, any outcome to a trial cannot encompass a cure for all

The view of The
Pain Relief Therapist is, if the same one thousand People are
treated, then a different regime of treatment is required in each
case, thereby bringing about an effective cure from within the
