I wrote on here a few months back about my son having a bad back etc, a few weeks ago we saw specialist Paediatric physiotherapist we spent a few hours with her, she was doing tests etc...her diagnoses is weak core stability, which now explains why he cant sit still, cant stand on one leg without falling over his writing is messy the list goes on...we have been given exercises to do to strengthen his muscles.
We have another appointment on the 18th of this month to see how he's getting on, I have a whole host of questions top ask this time.
What's strange he has a great sense of balance on his bike and learnt from about 4 years old in a day, he can swim he runs like the wind...but yet cant stand on one leg etc...
Do any of you know anything about weak core stability ?
will it effect him for the whole of his life ?
Do the exercises actually work ?
Are you born like this ?
Why has it taken us so long to notice ?
Should the school have noticed in PE ? (I believe they stand on one leg in PE)
Apparently horse riding is good for strengthening the muscles...I cant really afford £35 each week on that !
Any other exercises you can recommend ?
Many thanks in advance
