Bad theory good outcome

I dont have a lot of time today, so a quick thought of the day: A therapy based on a bad theory might well produce positive outcomes. You might well be wrong of what causes stammering, but if you work on breathing, non-avoidance, and general control of symptoms, you become more fluent!!!

So often people say I am cured because I did A and B which followed from my theory of stuttering, but this is a logical fallacy. Other theories might also get to A and B!!!
