Western Medicine tends to follow the Cartesian Model and treat the patient's physical symptoms locally, at the site of pain. The practitioner usually uses his or her own preferred form of treatment (i.e. medication, modalities, manual and/or exercise therapy) instead of searching for the source of the pain. However, it is well known that several patients can have the same location of symptoms yet have different causes for the pain.
