Child development

Children respond to physical and neurological input

“I am mother of triplet baby girls. They were born prematurely and the
motor development in one of the babies is delayed. She was
experiencing some muscle stiffness and at times excruciating pain. I
was recommended John one of my closest friends. We have now visited
him twice and the change in my little girl in two weeks is incredible.

She appears to be completely without pain, is much more relaxed and
aware of her surroundings.

She is eating and sleeping better – she has gained a pound in weight
in the last three weeks and is now 15lb 10. It took her 4 months to
gain the last lb!

She is holding her self much better, sitting with little support. She
had significant bruising to her left arm as a result of birth and had
failed to use this arm and hand. She is now using it much more freely.

She is now happily spending time on her tummy and in her bouncer,
putting weight through her feet which we were told may never happen.
She also rolled over back to front for the first time last week which
literally brought tears to my eyes.

Her speech is much improved, she is actually shouting in competition
with her sisters which is wonderful to hear.

What John has done and I hope will continue to do for us is truly
amazing.”  Sarah

Physical therapy for children includes, stretching, hip rotations, craniosacral therapy and myofascial release.

One thought on “Child development”

  1. My observations on this little girl are that very young children have incredibly good communication skills. Even if they are not “talking”, they can tell you by facial expression and body language if they like what you are doing. There are key areas of the spine and pelvis that suffer from limitations and restricted movement. The top of the neck, the vertebrae that stabilise the ribcage, the bone between the pelvic bones called the sacrum and the arm and hip sockets and the ankles are all key areas for movement. In effect they are “little people” with similar needs to adults, but needing a much more gentle approach.
