Medek pediatric PT is a highly effective treatment of low muscle tone or spasticity through postural reflex stimulation. Exercises are performed to stimulate the child’s instinctive desire to be upright in sitting or standing, or to walk. Where traditional therapy teaches a developmental model (roll, sit, crawl, walk) the focus of Medek is walking; the other motor milestones typically emerge spontaneously. Medek bypasses damaged or compromised brain systems and targets more primitive and more protected reflexive responses. Medek is effective because it targets healthy vs. damaged areas of the brain.
