I decided to add this blog on this website. My goal is to share ideas and quotes by famous and infamous therapists and yoga teachers and practitioners that influenced my knowledge and practice.
Bertha Bobath and Signe Brunstrom were two highly regarded therapists that developed treatment methods and theories in the 1960-70. They had different views of how to treat adults with hemiplegia. Bobath: Patient "must not be allowed to use basic limb synergies"... or tonic neck reflex to evoke or inhibit movement. Brunstrom: "encourage and gain control of basic limb synergies..."in order to restore advance movement.
