spinal galant

The Spinal Galant works in conjunction with the ATNR to help the baby's journey down the birth canal.  It is also thought to help a baby’s balance and coordinates the body for creeping and crawling.  It is thought to be connected to bladder function because a high percentage of children who are bedwetting past age 5 have an active Spinal Galant reflex. 


Some possible long term effects of an unintegrated Spinal Galant are:

  • Bedwetting
  • Poor endurance
  • Attention difficulties
  • Hip rotation to one side/scoliosis
  • Poor concentration
  • Poor coordination
  • Poor posture
  • Poor short-term memory
  • Fidgeting/hyperactivity
