Often times a change in the movement pattern of your little one is related to decreased movement in one or more joints. It could be shoulder tension, upper neck or Sacral (lower back) restriction or even tension along the sutures, joints, of the head. Once the areas of restriction are found and corrected, your child will naturally start to move in a balanced pattern. If your child is still using the preferred movements, we can show you some easy home care exercises that will stimulate muscle activity and balance the input to the brain for better movement on both sides of the body.
The causes of joint restriction in children is varied. Sometimes it can be due to intra-uterine constraint, meaning the space to move inside the uterus is small and the baby is stuck in one position for a period of time. Other times these imbalances can be caused by the birth process itself.
