2 Ways Intubation, Feeding Tube (NG or NJ Tube), and / or NICU Time Affects Milestone Development

Birth Trauma and Cranial Developments

Birth Trauma can be a variety of things:

  • Intubation
  • Feeding Tube (NG or NJ Tube)
  • NICU Time
  • and more

When a child experiences a birth trauma that interrupts their cranial movements, developmental delays can occur. 

How? 

Because these types of birth trauma can cause two types of jams in the cranial system. 

First, is an ATLAS JAM

Your child may be struggling with things like:

  • Head control
  • Eating
  • Swallowing
  • Hates tummy time
  • Not rolling over

The head needs to be able to counter all the movements in the spine, and when there is an atlas jam, it can't; therefore key transitional movements patterns can not occur. 

Why Are Transitional Movement Patterns Important?

Transitional Movement Patterns are what should happen in a person's body between each of the "baby milestones" that you know.

These are not all of the established milestones given by the CDC, but here are just a few:

  • Head lift
  • Tummy time
  • Head control
  • Rolling over
  • Standing
  • Walking

For a child to level-up in their movement development, they must have established transitional movements patterns as an infant. 

If not, you start to see mild to severe developmental delays physically and cognitively, and non-functional movements manifest in the child. 

All of these transitional movement patterns must happen in the head before they can be manifest in the body, and when a child experiences trauma(s) at birth, like an atlas jam, they are being set on a path of movement difficulties.

When you put these transitional movements back into their head you open up a whole new world of development and progress for your child.

To teach your child's head how to move, start going through our cranial courses, first the Head and Suture course and then the Nasal and Ear Course.

The second is an ETHMOID JAM 

If my child is older is it too late to put cranial movements back into their system?

No, it is not. 

When you improve cranial movements, you improve all movements.
