The only difference of view of note was the finding that manual therapy had a useful role to play in rehabilitation. It was conceded that this could in principle sometimes be useful when cases were deteriorating after 2 weeks, but evidence was absent.

This sentiment was perhaps misplaced; based on a medical view of the world rather than a common law view of the world.
