Physical Therapy -> Balance -> Protective Response Safety

Protective Response Safety

As newborns become infants, they have reflexes to help them keep balance. These safety responses can be seen when a baby is sitting in the floor. If they fall sideways, they’ll place their arm down to their side. If they fall backwards, hands go back; if they fall forward, hands go forward to catch them. These responses are learned as babies and follow us through adulthood.
