Yet most burglary victims would prefer the rozzers turning up on their
doorstep within half an hour of the crime.
This has always been the problem with regards to physiotherapy (if
the right word), in that most patients in pain or with stiff joints want
relief, however temporary. Laying of hands delivers this every well, just
speedy response from Five-O to a crime scene.
Yet every Police Chief Superintendent knows that budgets don't
far for the type of service people want. Likewise, laying of hands on
all very well, but who pays for it?
I admit I’ve hijacked this thread, but I am quite sure that what I

some merit. The counter argument, especially when applied to medicine, is
that most patients want a rapid response from their doctors, not long-term
chemotherapy with dubious benefits.
