Exercises that strengthen the back are helpful in integrating retained primitive reflexes like moro, atnr, stnr, spinal galant, landau, and TLR.
Developing strong extensor muscle is a large and important part for 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.
Extensor muscles help with balance and give large amounts of sensory input to our brains. Sensory input from our muscles is a large contributor to brain development and primitive reflex integration. Kids with retained primitive reflexes often have low muscle tone. They will also have a flexor tone that is typically stronger than their extensor tone.
This is only getting worse with our modern way of living and lack of movement.
While flexors are important, most individuals need more help with their extensors.
Upright posture is complex and maintained mainly by postural reflexes in the midbrain that utilize sensory input from the visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular systems.
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?
Your brain is meant to mature to a specific state that allows you to be independent of other humans. This “maturity” is called primitive reflex integration(@drrobertmelillo method). If primitive reflex integration doesn’t happen in the first 18 months of life, it will inhibit normal physiology in the brain and body.

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
