According to Rosa Angulo-Barroso, associate professor of movement science at the U-M School of Kinesiology, prenatal injuries can often result in self-correcting or fixable neuromotor delays, but sometimes toddlers get a more serious diagnosis, such as cerebral palsy.
To reach the conclusion, Angulo-Barroso and colleagues followed 15 infants at risk for neuromotor delays for two years and tested their changes in physical activity and treadmill-stepping in their homes.
They found that kids with neuromotor delays using the treadmill were on the same improving trajectory as normal kids.
