    John, that was excellent! That is the best "PT-as-a-terrier" that I have seen in a while.

    Well reasoned and logical, good evidentiary support - and you get "ad hom" back....Sigh.

    I suppose it's easier to believe something than it is to understand it.

      Isn't it hard to be adhominem if you're speaking to someone who uses a pseudonym instead of their real name? (kidding)

      I think he's confusing an accurate judgment of him being misinformed with a judgment of his IQ.

        Maybe he means an ad phantom-en.

            Just one more idea on this article. The authors cite the evidence to support eccentrics. The studies I've read on eccentrics either the researchers did them incorrectly, or positive results came way too soon. No time for tissue remodeling. Still what could account for the positive results? I'm thinking the eccentrics do a better job of mobilizing the nervous system then traditional training. The eccentric protocol, even done incorrectly, did a better job of mobilizing the nervous system then traditional therapy.
