I did - and I liked it (and "shared it" on FB). Good job, Joe!

As did I !

If only one of my ''readers'' uses this information in order to obtain the kind of care he or she wants, I'll be happy. Thanks Joe.

Ce n’est pas par délectation morose, par exhibitionnisme, par provocation que souvent les écrivains relatent des expériences affreuses ou désolantes : par le truchement des mots, ils les universalisent et ils permettent aux lecteurs de connaître, au fond de leurs malheurs individuels, les consolations de la fraternité. C’est à mon avis une des tâches essentielles de la littérature et ce qui la rend irremplaçable : surmonter cette solitude qui nous est commune à tous et qui cependant nous rend étrangers les uns aux autres.

Joe great post. You should write there more often, I would likely go to that site then :-)

Thanks guys...Much appreciated...

I am sure there will be some comments, as were on Mike's site, but I ask that anyone who engages in discussion, to learn from Jasons last few posts on Mikes site...these were good

I have learned from being involved online for the past few years that my statements can sometimes be rather blunt. I have learned that this does not always open up for good discussion...It simply puts up a blockade for each side to throw grenades. Even as far-fetched as I think someones idea's may be, I will likely have no influence in helping them better understand neurophysiology when I totally disregard and invalidate what they believed to be "real" for years.

Let's take David Butler as an example. He is a witty, funny and entertaining and talks about pain. He attempts to invalidate things indirectly, by stating what he knows vs. what people are doing wrong. And he has been rather effective at this.

I am trying to learn to be more like Butler. This blog post was to tell you what I know, not what I think is wrong...

Very well written Joe. I think it is well reasoned and non-inflammatory; not blunt at all.

If you're using any of the text again I might edit:

Great stuff, well stated. I also enjoyed the "do due" as I am dealing with toilet training at my house.

Perhaps this approach will turn on more PTs to the idea of how important the nervous system is. I know I didn't at one time. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Joe.

Default Great summary

Well said! (written ). I particularly appreciate the tone of your writing, collegial and inclusive rather than dictatorial and confrontative while still being firm and factual.
