Positioning Your Baby
The most common muscle imbalance I see in children is torticollis. One of the ways torticollis can occur is due to improper positioning of an infant. In typically developing children (children without a medical diagnosis) you can PREVENT muscle imbalances from occurring in the first place. Why is it important?...Muscle imbalances can cause developmental delays in children...some signs may be hating tummy time, not rolling over, not crawling, one foot turning in, flat feet, toe walking, not walking, poor coordination, etc.
