Neuro-Developmental Assessment

A Neurodevelopmental assessment looks at the spontaneous posture and movement of your child in regard to age appropriateness, movement quantity and movement quality. It will test and reveal any changes in muscle tone, primitive and postural reflexes as well as muscle length and muscle strength.

This assessment will help decide if and what kind of treatment your child needs. It will help set goals for your child and measure your child’s progress and achievements.

If you are unsure about the development of your baby, if it feels too floppy or stiff or doesn’t reach the expected milestones in time, you should consider coming for a Neuro-developmental assessment.

Musculo-skeletal assessment

A musculo-skeletal assessment examines joint mobility, movement range, muscle length and strength as well as the symmetry of posture.

The findings of the assessment will enable conclusions about the musculoskeletal effect on posture and movement and help to decide appropriate treatment modalities.

This assessment is often used to assess acute injuries, joint or postural problems. Parts of this assessment are also included in a Neuro-Developmental assessment.
