Our doctors are not properly educated

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

So here is another example showing utter ignorance - and I could easily say lack of knowledge about the functioning of the human body - on the behalf of the doctor.

Thus we have a person who goes to visit GP because of the complaint about the pain in the lower back and hip area. The doctor orders the x-ray and later he gives the diagnosis that there is inflammation in the sacroiliac joint ( hip area ). But he does not order any treatment as he believes that the pain will go away by itself. Unfortunately few weeks ( or maybe even months ) later the pain is still there and the patient had to put up with this discomfort all this time.

Now... I must make it clear here that we cannot give and place all the blame on the doctor because in the end it is the patient who allowed and who has created this problem and sickness in his body. For various reasons he did not take care of his body and he allowed some muscles to get stiff and frozen, which later manifested itself as pain in the hip area. And so he is fully responsible for it. But then we have the doctor, whose job is helping other people with various health issues. And in this case all that the doctor did, was that he printed out form the internet the description of the disorder and he said that the pain will go away by itself.

Now look at this... I am a simple massage therapist who according to the local laws is allowed to only "touch people for pleasure". I cannot make any diagnosis and I can only touch people for pleasure. So how come that I know - without any access to any hi-tech equipment - that what the doctor said and did I fucking negligence and he should be sued for it. Or at least his licence as a doctor should be at least suspended until he gets proper education in regards to dealing with the people with similar issues.

To be continued
