Coordination is the ability to perform more than one movement gracefully
and in harmony. People of all ages can have coordination problems from
children to the elderly.
Coordination problems can also be called
dyspraxia, which has been linked to a delay in the neuron development
within the brain. This can be picked up at an early age when children
do not meet their expected milestones.
Adults and children can also
develop coordination problems after a head injury which affects the
motor cortex which is responsible for motor control.
The signs and Symptoms of coordination problems / dyspraxia
It can be quite obvious that a person has coordination problems as they
are unable to perform smooth graceful movements. Movements can tend to
look awkward and certain activities are avoided by the individual.
of the signs and symptoms can include the following:
- Difficulty using a knife and fork
- Frequent trips and falls
- Poor handwriting skills
- Perception difficulties
- Poor balance
- Poor hand-eye coordination
Some of these signs and symptoms of coordination problems can be
assisted with our senior physiotherapists.

What Physiotherapy Treatments can be expected for coordination problems?
Our senior physiotherapists are experienced at developing
treatment plans for those who have coordination difficulties. Some of
the treatments may include:
- Hand eye coordination (threading beads on a string)
- Gross motor coordination (running, jumping, opposition of legs and arms, marching)
- Strengthening exercises
- Gait re-education
These exercises can be progressed. As the coordination improves the
exercises can be made more challenging to develop further improvement.
Coordination problems can be present from birth or developed due to an
injury. Coordination difficulties can have a huge impact on a person’s
life, preventing them from performing certain activities and taking part
This can not only have an impact of a person physically but
