Physical Therapy -> Neuromuscular Retraining -> Crossing Midline

Crossing Midline

Midline is an imaginary line that runs from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet - imagine a line running from your nose to your belly button and all the way down between your feet. When we cross midline, that means that our right hand crosses over that imaginary line to the other side. This task helps both sides of our brain talk to each other which increases balance, body awareness, and coordination.
