Sorry, I just couldn't resist. The ever changing "subluxation" theory is expanded upon.

I've been trying to find a place to comment on something you said on another blog. You said, "Why is FM 'incurable'? Because the medical community (worldwide) have not come to agreement on it's cause. Or that it really exists for that matter (of course, anyone reading this will tell me it sure as hell does)."

Obviously you have never had fibromyalgia or any type of chronic pain, otherwise you wouldn't have made this foolish and ignorant statement. It exists. There are causes. I'd educate you about it, but you seem to be one of those bullies who call themselves "Doctors" or "Physical Therapists." You're not an expert on fibromyalgia, therefore you need to stop commenting on it. Especially if you don't even believe it exists!

I also haven't torn my ACL, had a spinal fusion, or had a CVA. And yet (surprise, surprise) I know the causes of these and do a very good job of rehabilitating these.

You ad hominem attack doesn't do much. Especially done anonymously. You fail to provide any information on how my statement was false or misinformed in anyway.

To help you, here is some additional information:

From WebMD:
"Fibromyalgia is considered to be a syndrome-a set of symptoms that occur together but do not have a known cause. There are theories as to what may cause it, but there is not enough evidence to support any single theory." Emphasis added.

From Mayo Clinic:
Doctors don't know what causes fibromyalgia."

Wow! You were right. I have no idea what I'm talking about. Good luck.
