    I agree with Scotty, it’s more important to focus on what is ultimately going to change healthcare in the end than concern yourself with others feelings. Unfortunately, school (DC, PT, or MD) has created a core of indoctrination to a singular ideology. Whether that be medication, surgery, adjustments, e-stim, stretching, strengthening, etc. everyone has their view and experience to justify the means. As you said, if 2 people disagree on something, 1 or both of them is wrong. That doesn’t mean, however, that one or both will ever admit to being wrong. Does it suck to be considered someone who ‘bashes’ other trains of thought? Of course, but ultimately we’re talking about the difference in patients quality of life which, to me, their pain is worth making others uncomfortable.

    There are ways to soften the blow of pointing out that someone is wrong or could stand to benefit from learning something new, which is what the other forum post is for (how to explain ID). Ultimately though, until ID is proven scientific knowledge, only those who are built for what ID entails will gravitate towards it. Everyone else will either scoff, be offended, or think they already do the “same” thing. There’s a reason hundreds/thousands of people have been exposed to ID and yet there are maybe 50 providers worldwide who get it and work their ass off to provide better care.

    “Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it.” You can only present people with the truth, how they react to that is not your concern.
