One principle has become evident:  if healing is not ‘completed’, and if a non-loadbearing (tender) structure remains—even though it is ‘stronger’ and the patient ‘feels better’, what do you think will happen over time?  Will continuing to use this ‘vulnerable’ structure lead to re-accumulation of small fiber nerve damage?  Will this vulnerable structure be more susceptible to further injury?  Will this patient be back on the phone to us at some point saying ‘I thought you said this treatment was supposed to produce ‘lasting results’…?  Probably.
