This is a concern many parents can relate to. A child is considered to be an early-walker if he or she begins to walk prior to 12 months old. If a child begins to walk after 18 months the or she is considered a late-walker.
Early-walkers have a higher likelihood of suffering lower back pain as adolescents and as adults. Children who are early-walkers have a higher incidence of low back pain as adults because they may have missed out on the crawling pattern, which actually helps develop the core. The movement patterns typically found in Pilates are very similar if not identical to the movement patterns of a developing baby.
The longer the child takes to walk, the more time they have to develop the neuromuscular connection between the brain and the core. If a child is not walking after 20 months a consultation with a pediatrian is recommended.
