THEODORE DALRYMPLE: Is Physical Therapy Overrated?

It’s always worked well for me. Though about 20 years ago I tore a rotator cuff (I thought if I could bench 275 I could incline-bench 275, which turned out to be incorrect) and I went through the regular physical therapy but couldn’t get past about 90% better.
