They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past and that besides, they have already won

    I presented with a slightly strange pair of overuse injuries from lifting and judo, and was told that I should stop squatting and deadlift, stop lifting and wrestling altogether really, because the only safe method of working out is to work one muscle at a time. I remember it quite clearly. The part where he explained that isolation exercises were the only way to use one's body is where I realized I was going to be quite salty about paying this quack. He's a respected surgeon in a high-traffic hospital and came recommended to me.

    Vid of the office visit or it didn't happen? Other less stark experiences are common for myself and people I know. The painkillers are poetic license but you're the one saying that "maybe try deadlifting if you need a stronger back" is bro-science.

    If you critically interrogate laypersons who have run into medical issues as they try to start working out, you'll find plenty of stories like this. I stand by my assertion: a randomly selected non-sports doc is statistically no better than a shaman's spell for the combat athlete.
