Joint hypermobility in children: what is it and how does it affect posture, coordination and fitness?

The term generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) is used when a person has several joints that are more flexible than usual. This happens when the connective tissue which makes up the joint structures (capsule and ligaments) is more compliant (more easily stretched) than usual. Many children with hypermobile joints have movement difficulties. Why is this and what can be done to overcome these difficulties?

Pediatric Occupational Therapy Tips

I work as an occupational therapist in the school system, and I cringe every time I see a student “w-sitting”. Are you familiar with the term “w-sitting”? This is when a child sits on the floor with his knees bent, his bottom on the floor, and his lower legs splayed out on either side of his bottom. Just imagine if the child were in a tall kneeling position, spread his ankles apart, and plopped down on his bottom. If you look at a child sitting in this position from the top down, the legs…

My child has been diagnosed with low muscle tone. What does this mean?

An infant or child will get a diagnosis of low muscle tone when their muscles appear to be less firm than usual, appear to be floppy and to have loose joints and when the child appears to be less alert and have poor posture and attention.

Norms for Core Strength in Children

I frequently get asked where you can find norms to measure core strength in children. As pediatric therapists, we sometimes use supine flexion, prone extension, modified sit ups and push ups as measures of core strength. I don’t usually refer to the norms but more look at the quality of how the exercise is performed and progress over time for each individual child. I do realize though that parents, teachers and administrators do like to understand norms to compare what a child should…
