Tim Noakes Rule 6 on Injury Treatment.

Rule 6 Treat the cause

“Because all running injuries have a cause, it follows that an injury can never be cured until the causative factors are eliminated. Thus surgery, physiotherapy, cortisone injections, drug therapy, chiropractic manipulations and homeopathic remedies are likely to fail if they do not correct all the genetic, environmental and training factors causing the injury.”

Tim Noakes has it spot on. No amount of injury care will help until you have found the source of the injury.
