Request to confirm your inner thigh consultation email address From the "Children's Inner Thigh Consultation Form" on the top page We have received many questions and concerns about your child's inner thigh. We always reply to emails about questions and worries, but many people come back, so please send it after confirming your email again! Several return emails have continued in December, so if you have not received the email, please enter it again from the consultation form. ========================= *If you are worried about walking inward, please feel free to contact us using the consultation form below. [Children's inner thigh walking gait consultation form] ↑ Please feel free to send us your child's walking and posture concerns from here. *Thank you for confirming your e-mail address. ========================== For children walking inwardly, we explain the following three possibilities. (1) Problems with the musculoskeletal system (pelvis, hip, knee, ankle, etc.) (2) Problems with the functional nervous system (vestibular sensation, proprioception, posture control from the cervical spine, etc.) (3) Problems that combine (1) and (2) above Having examined and evaluated many children, I believe that internal thigh walking is not a simple musculoskeletal problem, but may be caused by a combination of complex problems such as decreased and increased nerve function during the growth process.

About internal thigh gait and proprioception Proprioceptive receptors are located in muscles and joints. It is said that there are many receptors on the soles of the feet. This receptor matches the part used when walking, and you can see that it is particularly concentrated on the thumb. It is also the key to improving children's inner thighs. Proprioception is the sensation of feeling the position, movement, and force of one's body. It can be broadly divided into two roles. The first role is to regulate power. For example, it has the role of adjusting the force by applying a lot of force when holding a heavy object and gently when holding an easily fragile object such as an egg. The second role is to coordinate movement. For example, feeling the inclination of your body when balancing is mainly a function of vestibular sensation, but quickly adjusting muscles to avoid falling and maintaining posture is mainly a function of proprioception. These two are the main factors, but they also affect the role of maintaining one's posture, the role of enhancing one's own body awareness, and the ability to balance. There are examinations and training performed on children who walk inwardly, and there are tests in which they are asked to imitate their arms in front of their bodies with their eyes closed. At first, you may be asked to "raise it at shoulder height," and instead of raising it at shoulder height in front of your body, you may raise it diagonally forward or higher than your shoulders. However, there are not many people who raise their arms so much that they banzai. This is because "proprioception" tells us the position information of the shoulder joint.

■What is inward walking? Inward walking is a state in which the foot axis is always facing inward with respect to a straight line in the direction of walking or traveling. The femur, lower leg, and talus neck become adults while their twisting changes as they grow. Normally, with growth, the angle of the anterior sprain of the femur decreases, the lower leg rotates outward, and the angle of the talus cervical angle decreases the angle of adduction. This affects the growth and twist of each skeletal system depending on the child's behavior, sleeping position, sitting habits, and play limb position during the growth process of gross movement from childhood, and is finally expressed as the orientation of the foot when walking. In addition, prolonged gaming and study may affect the development of functional nerves, and as a result, postural control may not function well. Chart of the mechanism of internal thigh walking ■ Errors in gross movement (shortcut) Gross exercise is the movement of the body that is the foundation of daily life in the baby's growth stage, such as raising the body, standing up, sitting, maintaining posture, walking, and running. Motor nerves transmitted from the brain start from the head, go to the legs, and then from top to bottom. The order in which the baby can move is also in the order → the head → the wedge→ the arms→ the back→ the hips. Along with this trend, the gross exercise that can be done will also develop. As a result, sensory integration takes place. In this flow, an error is, for example, standing without high-climbing is like moving to the next step without using your arms much, so sensory integration may not work well. * What is sensory integration? Human senses have five senses.(Touch, sight, hearing, taste, smell)In addition to proprioception, proprioception(Sensation of muscle expansion and contraction and joint movement), vestibular satoru(Sensations such as balance, balance, and speed of the body)There are a total of seven sensations. Sensory integration is the arrangement and classification of these seven senses that are trying to enter the body one after another. Next time, I will explain about "proprioception" in this sensory integration. Written by: Naoaki Kizu This page was automatically translated. Please note that it may differ from the original contents.
