Other signs of weak muscle tone can include poor posture, slouching, lack of body awareness, difficulty in chewing and fatigue. Specific exercises to work on poor muscle tone can help the child gain more control over his body movement and mobility. In this video, Dr. Koyeli Sengupta, a Senior Developmental Pediatrician from UMMEED, Mumbai shares techniques you can adopt at home, to work with your child to strengthen his muscle tone, as well as strategies to motivate the child to participate in these activities readily.
