What is a motor disorder?
A motor disorder is a condition that affects the way a person is able to control their movements. Mindyra.com states that “motor disorders may involve developmental delays and deficits involving fine and gross motor functions. Developmental coordination disorder is manifested by clumsiness and slowness or inaccuracy of performance of motor skills that cause interference with daily living.”
Those with motor disorders may experience abnormal movements of their hands, head, and body. Movements can be rapid and repetitive as well.
Types of motor skills
Adults with motor related issues typically experience difficulty with everyday tasks such as taking care of themselves, doing housework, or writing.
Gross motor skills
Trouble with gross motor skills causes a person to struggle with walking, running, holding items, or doing anything that requires them to use large muscles in their torso, arms, and legs.
Fine motor skills
Fine motor skills are what allow a person to use the small muscles in their hands and wrists. If a person is having trouble with their fine motor skills, it will show in the way they try to write or pick small items up such as utensils or pens.
Motor planning skills
Individuals who have motor planning issues are unable to complete tasks that involve multiple steps, such as preparing food, bathing, or copying the movement of someone else.
How Neuromotor Re-education Can Help
Neuromotor re-education at Dynamic Physical Therapy and Rehab Services consists of therapeutic exercises to help you progress from simple movements to ones that progressively require more control and stability.
Neuromotor re-education helps the nervous system’s ability to communicate to your muscles. This has a positive affect on your overall stability, balance, coordination and ability to function normally.
Here at Dynamic Physical Therapy and Rehab Services, our physical therapists understand and know how to treat a variety of motor issues with neuromotor re-education.
When you arrive at our Glen Cove and Hicksville clinic for an assessment, our therapists will review your medical history, observe your muscle tone, overall mobility, coordination, balance, and other factors that may be affecting your ability to perform certain tasks or movements.
