    If you recognize and discuss the limits of the bracing studies, does that make you an anti-bracing activist? I hope not.

    Now if you replace "anti-bracing" with "anti-alternative treatments" then I would say there does seem to be some activism here that could be mellowed. But relax that too much and someone will be placing advertisements.

    I would say the people labeled "anti-alternative treatments" are more accurately labeled, "pro-evidence" folks though "anti-woo-woo" is more euphonious.
