Bobath NDT: The Bashing Continues!

I know, I know, I bash NDT and Bobath a lot. I bash bloodletting too because it doesn't, whatchamacallit... work. That's it, work. It has the problem of not working. It is ineffective. It is devoid of efficacy. It is incapable of helping.

For a long time me and some colleagues in research got a ton o' backlash when we pointed out that the bird was dead. But more recently, PTs and OTs have generally got the message that its so dead, its starting to stank.

You know things are bad when Wikipedia turns on you! When you read this, have a look at two things: 1: The opening paragraph.

Its almost like the million Wile E. Cayote cartoons where he runs off the cliff and tries midair to run back to the cliff. 2: the rest of the page. Scath. Ing.
