For me effective treatment comes "layer by layer".
And scaling the magnitude of dysfunction may help you gauge the level of care required.
With relative large scale dysfunctions, often care requires promotion of increased activity levels. In other instances, a general approach to improving overall mobility does the trick. Sometimes taking a step back is a difficult act but treating red herrings can be quite embarrassing.
For more subtle dysfunctions, however, localized mobility and or stability may be required. In such cases, the importance of finding the key link becomes greater. And additionally, the need for more precise and appropriate exercises increases.
Therefore, for effective care in musculoskeletal medicine, deciphering the true cause of dysfunction warrants a detective...
...while treatment warrants a craftsman!
