Don Babinski a.k.a. the Polish tickler

SOMEWHERE IN NEW JERSEY – Don Babinski changed the medical world.  One of the biggest proponents of tickling patients, Dr. Babinski published over 35 articles showing the benefits of tickling. Most physicians have laughed off Dr. Babinski, the Polish tickler.  Don had the last laugh, his most famous work described babies and some adults that weren’t ticklish in their feet no matter how hard he tried.

“I used a 45-gauge [tickle feather] still without success,” Babinski stated.  “This patient must have an upper motor neuron disease.  Incidentally the toes went up instead of down.  No tickles.”

Dr. Babinski wanted all physicians to tickle as much as possible but it just never caught on.  Babinski lives on in a small select-few physicians who still perform a full physical exam.
