I'm on a long tour and have been having trouble with joint pain. I saw a couple of chiropractors, and although they were affordable and their advice made sense, I didn't notice any improvement when I followed their directions. So I went to an orthopedist, who took $600 worth of X-rays (which under Texas law are now his property, not mine) which showed no damage, but nevertheless he told me the best thing for my health would be to stop touring. By all accounts the pain I'm experiencing is in my tendons, but beyond that diagnosis these guys may as well be reading my palms.
Is there another kind of doctor I should be seeing for this? Osteopath? Patrician? Orthodontist? Psychopath? Or am I better off just flushing my money down a toilet? Any relevant advice would be appreciated. Thanks! --Ben
