EBM (Evidence-Based Medicine) vs. Clinical Experience

Essentially, this could read as “proven effects” vs. “placebo”.  Ingraham of PainScience alluding in his microblog to the difference between thinking that a particular treatment/modality/technique is working, and actually knowing through science that it does.  As a healthcare practitioner, I think this is exceptionally important.  In order to provide ethically responsible care, you should know that a treatment is working in an objective manner, without convincing yourself that it does.
