Creeping and walking difficulty - smiling baby crawling on floor - Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy

Creeping and Walking Difficulty

Some toddlers cannot creep (crawl on their hands and knees) or walk correctly. A ten-month-old boy presented with the inability to creep or walk well. He was only able to scoot on his butt to move forward. When his parents helped him to walk, his toes were pointing outward, especially on his right side.

After seeing many doctors with lots of testing, no pathology was found. Since there is no test or diagnosis for fascial strain, our world goes unnoticed in the medical community.

Like many parents, they came to me as a last resort. On examination, he had a zero-second brain cycle with a very tight pelvis. A fascial twist existed at the head of each femur with considerably more strain on his right.

When I started therapy with him, his right hip went into a severe twist, and his left hip was not as pronounced. As I listened to his body, he appeared to go into a fetal position of twisted legs. During the visit, he went into this position repeatedly, suggesting he was strained there for a considerable amount of time.

Many professionals feel that what happened during those forty weeks is inconsequential for future health. I believe that as the fascial web develops in utero, it can retain tension to later create many lifetime issues. For authentic healing, the therapist needs to revisit and clear those old traumas in space and time.

His tight pelvis started to release during the session with his brain cycle opening nicely. I wish that orthopedic professionals would consider our fascial concept in their clinical practices.

Better yet, I believe the work at birth could have prevented his current condition. It makes so much sense, and I hope the world gets it someday.

We feel compassion for all suffering infants. Our aim is for every neonate to experience the wonder of therapy. We see a world where every newborn is free from a lifetime of suffering due to birth trauma. Our goal is to create a global shift of consciousness for a more peaceful planet.
