Coordination is the ability to perform more than one movement gracefully and in harmony. People of all ages can have coordination problems from children to the elderly. Coordination problems can also be called dyspraxia, which has been linked to a delay in the neuron development within the brain. This can be picked up at an early age when children do not meet their expected milestones. Adults and children can also develop coordination problems after a head injury which affects the motor cortex which is responsible for motor control.


The signs and Symptoms of coordination problems / dyspraxia



It can be quite obvious that a person has coordination problems as they are unable to perform smooth graceful movements. Movements can tend to look awkward and certain activities are avoided by the individual. Some of the signs and symptoms can include the following:
  • Difficulty using a knife and fork
  • Frequent trips and falls
  • Poor handwriting skills
  • Perception difficulties
  • Poor balance
  • Poor hand-eye coordination
Some of these signs and symptoms of coordination problems can be assisted with the experience of a Physiotherapist from Physio.co.uk.


Physiotherapy and Coordination problems



Physiotherapy can help to improve a person’s coordination through different treatment techniques. Physiotherapists from Physio.co.uk will work with the client and parents (if a child) to develop goals and a treatment plan to improve coordination which would improve confidence and self esteem. The Physiotherapists at Physio.co.uk are experienced in treating conditions such as dyspraxia and coordination difficulties. For an expert opinion to help improve self-confidence through improvement of coordination please contact us or call 0330 088 7800 to arrange an appointment today.


What Physiotherapy Treatments can be expected for coordination problems?



The Physiotherapists at Physio.co.uk are experienced at developing treatment plans for those who have coordination difficulties. Some of the treatments may include:
  • Hand eye coordination (threading beads on a string)
  • Gross motor coordination (running, jumping, opposition of legs and arms, marching)
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Gait re-education
These exercises can be progressed. As the coordination improves the exercises can be made more challenging to develop further improvement.


Summary



Coordination problems can be present from birth or developed due to an injury. Coordination difficulties can have a huge impact on a person’s life, preventing them from performing certain activities and taking part in sports. This can not only have an impact of a person physically but psychologically also, effecting their confidence and self-esteem. The Physiotherapists at Physio.co.uk are experienced in developing client centred goals, working with the client and their relatives (parents / carers).
