Yesterday, a PT (Australian) came to see me. There's a fundamental difference, I think, in the way he think and the neuro approach CA. The PT (very experienced) truly believes that the neurons in my brain which deliver messages (cells?) are shut off and can be re-stimulated via exercise... specific ones, repeated many times The neuro says these "connections" are dead and only a miracle drug will bring them "back". The PT also asserts that positive thinking is very helpful--something the neuro says can't hurt ut is neither here nor there. What do you think?
I have a question about PTs v. Neuro's - Ataxia UK
