causing the pain. >> that's right. i love talking about alternative therapies that we'll talk about today but pain happens for a reason. before you start thinking about treating the pain before your back hurts and you get a massage and hip hurts and get acupuncture, it's important to figure out why that pain is happening. we're going to talk about alternative therapies but it's important for people to know that pain happens for a reason. until you figure out what that reason is, it's not a good idea to treat the pain because in my office sometimes i see really bad for the marathon with an achy hip. getting massage therapy for a month and a half and had a stress fracture in her hip which was the problem. you have to figure out why the pain is happening before you can treat the pain. >> before you go to the wrong alternative therapy you could potentially make something worse. do you feel like medical schools and your area of expertise, are they embracing these technologies. >> slowly. the nice thing about studies like the one we're going to talk about is that alternative
