Like many roads, my local roads are in poor condition. They are full of holes and are an issue for all vehicles.
Today I noticed that they are filling in the holes. They have a large nozzle that sprays a filling into them. The technology allows traffic to go over the patched holes immediately.
I don’t know how long it will last. I know that it is a cheaper option than blocking the road and resurfacing it. That option will last much longer. But it’s a much higher cost – it takes time and it causes disruption.
The short-term fix definitely helps. It’s quick, appears to be good value, and doesn’t inconvenience people for long.
But it’s not addressing the issue – that the road needs resurfacing.
It doesn’t help the rest of the surface that continues to degrade. Holes will appear in those areas at some point.
But not today. Not now.
Therapy can patch holes or it can offer resurfacing. Your choice. 
And sometimes we need a patch.
