Importance of Primal Reflexes in Rehab

I thought you might appreciate this paraphrased statement by Sally Goddard in “Reflexes Learning and Behavior” and whyI think PRRT (Primal Reflex Release Technique) is such an important part of the entire picture and complements the NKT (Neurokinetic Therapy)   and SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment ) approaches,…“if primitive reflexes are still strong than stimulation of the postural reflexes alone may not reap concomitant changes in the areas of fine muscle coordination and perceptual processing..while motor training programs strengthen postural control they fail to inhibit those retained primitive reflexes which continue to impede the processing of information in the brain. ” Interesting stuff…more to come
