The duck walk:
To be honest, I didn't think much of this exercise until I saw it in action, and then I was very impressed. You want the child to walk with their feet turned out, and their hands turned in with thumbs pointing in. That sounds simple, right? They should be able to do this smoothly, walking back and forth.
If they cannot, then it's likely they have a moro.
If they can't keep their hands turned in its also likely they have a moro.
If they seem to be twisting their upper body while they are doing this, then it is likely they have a moro.
If they are having a time balancing or are holding their breath as they attempt this exercise it is likely they have a retained Moro.
To help them be able to do this, you can put down footprints for them to follow and give them a rod to hold their hands in place.
The goal is for them to perform the exercise smoothly without any extra help. A retained Moro makes it difficult to move the extremities independently of each other. So if the feet turn in, it makes it difficult to keep the hands turned outward.

Upright posture is complex and maintained mainly by postural reflexes in the midbrain that utilize sensory input from the visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular systems.
Developing strong extensor muscles is a large and important part of getting an infant ready to sit up and eventually walk. Increased muscle tone and the help and eventually integration of primitive reflexes work together to not only getting us moving in an upright position but also to help the brain develop.
Retained primitive reflexes are often thought of as developmental problems in kids. But kids grow up, and integrated reflexes have side effects in adults, too. In adults, they can affect anything and everything from posture and balance to focus and energy. So, how do primitive reflexes affect energy levels in adults?

Natalies story of how she was terrified to visit a chiropractor, until she realized the benefits and relief it provided for her chronic back pain.
This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case? This post is specifically about why medical and functional blood analysis is different and absolutely needs to be understood
