|Toddlers fall about 38 times per day. Often they just get up and get on with it. However if an injury occurs and goes undetected problems can surface later in life as an adult.
This time of life is also when children’s brain are developing at their fastest as they learn numerous new skills. It is the time when they learn to crawl, walk, run and communicate and are keen to explore their environment and to interact socially.
Postural imbalances and strains may have an impact on development and it is therefore advisable to monitor the progress of your toddler’s growth and developmental milestones. Early detection and correction of major physical mishaps or developmental lag may prevent problems developing in future.
