AC_WebsiteIcons_Tone Management

Tone Management

Muscle tone is the state of muscle tension when your body is at rest. Your child may be observed to have low muscle tone, normal muscle tone, or high muscle tone. Muscle tone has an impact on postural control and postural stability and control of your body that is necessary to stay upright and stabilize you during movement. Although muscle tone doesn’t change, therapy will help your child find ways to strengthen and stretch specific muscles to make movement easier and help your child find strategies for managing their muscle tone.
