    Default low muscle tone help.

    Hi all my ds1 is 5 in Sept and has low muscle tone & needs to improve his inner core and upper body... What would be an effective activity/sport to help him?

    My DD has similar issues but we are yet to start OT so I don’t know what they will suggest.I know that a friend’s little boy has similar issues and the OT/physios recommended swimming and gymnastics.

    Hi, we are seeing an OT for this and similar issues. I can email you the activities she sent if you like? PM me.

    HI there, my son did OT for this when he was 5 years old. Low impact, resistance exercises were good rather than ones that used 'bursts' or 'flourishes' of energy. Good ones were pulling and slowly releasing on thick elastic/ rubber that was fixed to a door handle or in each hand, leaning on a big plastic exercise ball against the wall and holding, climbing up ropes and using pullies to lift weights such as heavy gym matts/foam pieces (those sorts of things were done at the OT gym). It helped a lot. All the best.
