my 2 yr old cant turn her arm to face palm up and her grasp in that hand is not strong at all it doesn't hurt her or bother her but i was wondering if anyone had heard of this before
lewsmom responded:
I am certainly not an expert in this area, but I am a physical therapist and generally consider a significant weakness that is present on one side of the body but not the other, an abnormality. If her arm and hand is in fact obviously weaker than the other I would definitely inform her pediatrician and go from there. Hope that helps.
