Why Primitive Patterns?
Written by Gray Cook Wednesday, November 12, 2014 FMS Pod Casts
- Primitive patterns are early in the developmental sequence.
- Even though primitive patterns may not look like function, they are very important to function.
- Rolling, prone on elbows, crawling, tall kneeling, half kneeling, bridging, pushing up, deep squatting and eventually standing are all developemental patterns.
- We use primitive patterns to develop a base of static and dynamic stability as well as controlled mobility.
- We reduce load and positions to reacquire movement without the need to compensate or substitute.
