Published Research: What's Missing?

The purpose of publishing research is to share what was found. Many times the article is formatted to present the purpose, method and findings of the research. What is sometimes left out is the finding's clinical significance or opinionated conclusions. When the former is left out, the reader is free to meditate on their unique perception of the raw content without any external distractions. The latter is usually left out so the publishing would be free from any bias. Unfortunately, many readers could be left pondering the question "...but what does this mean?"

My aim is to post a free text article and then provide suggestions on what it could mean, relative to the Massage Therapy profession.
