Spinal Galant

This reflex plays a role in the birth process and should be inhibited between three and nine months of post-natal life. If it is uninhibited it can affect


- Ability to sit still

- Attention and short term memory

- Coordination

- Sometimes associated with bedwetting

- If on one side only, it can alter posture and the fluency of movement and can contribute to the development of scoliosis (curvature) of the spine
