About The Clients

CME therapy may be an appropriate form of therapeutic intervention for children with central nervous system impairment starting from the age of 3 months. Although a formal diagnosis is not required to initiate therapy, the following are some (but not all) of the diagnoses in which CME therapy may be beneficial:

  • Global Developmental Delay
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Hypotonia (low muscle tone)
  • Genetic disorders such as Down Syndrome, Rett Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome, etc
  • Spina Bifida
  • Seizure disorders (for children who are under medical supervision)
  • Risk of motor delay related to prematurity and/or hypoxic brain injury

CME therapy should NOT be used:

  • In the case of a progressive/degenerative condition
  • With a child who has a diagnosis of Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Finally, because the CME practitioner must expose the child to the influence of gravity through the safe and progressive application of distal support, the use of CME therapy may be limited by the child’s physicality and the comfort level/experience of the treating therapist.
