Motor coordination is the combination of body movements created with the kinematic (such as spatial direction) and kinetic (force) parameters that result in intended actions. Motor coordination is achieved when subsequent parts of the same movement, or the movements of several limbs or body parts are combined in a manner that is well timed, smooth, and efficient with respect ...Read more
More info needed: This question cannot be answered without knowing how and why your coordination was lost in the first place!
Could be: See the answer to balance question significant and persistent loss of coordination should be investigated!
Yes: There are progressive degenerative diseases of the cerebellum or those tracts from the cerebellum which can cause loss of coordination. There are also other causes such as tumor, trauma, infection, and others. A neurologist can help you sort these out.
Loss of coordination: The loss of coordination is itself a symptom, and sometimes a sign. There are many ways coordination can be impaired, from inner ear problems to brain stem strokes, to acute drug toxicity (including alcohol). More information is needed. I suggest you discuss the problem with your doctor or a neurologist. If you are abruptly, severely impaired, I suggest going to to an emergency department.
See a Dr.: I don't know youur age but coordination is related to the cerebellum and the inner ear. See your pcp or a neurologst.
Yes: Jump rope, boxers use this all the time for speed agility and coordination.
Need eval: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes.
Motor coordination: Motor coordination is the combination of body movements created with the kinematic (such as spatial direction) and kinetic (force) parameters that result in intended actions. Motor coordination is achieved when subsequent parts of the same movement, or the movements of several limbs or body parts are combined in a manner that is well timed, smooth, and efficient with respect to the intended goal.
The principle: Mechanism is the slowing of communication from the brain to muscles and nerves. There is a loss of precision motor skills. Additionally, with increased processing time and decreased accuracy of information transmitted throughout the central nervous system reaction time is slowed. The loss of coordination and slowing in reaction time results in a tremendous number of injuries and deaths: (
Coordination is the: Ability to use different parts of the body together smoothly and efficiently. Poor coordination is when the parts are not working together properly. It may result in poor balance and impaired purposeful actions. Causes may include genetics, infections, injuries, toxins, effects of medical/neurological conditions, and side effects to medications. Medical/neurological evaluation is necessary.
Uncoordination: I agree with dr. Baker about vitamin B12 deficits and uncoordination -- and would definitely add thiamine to the list. Thiamine deficiency is very common in chronic alcoholics and can cause ataxia (balance and coordination problems), eye movement problems, tremor, inability to learn, memory loss, confusion, and making up stories (confabulation).See 1 more doctor answer
Paxil (paroxetine): Paxil (paroxetine) is not given to help coordination. It is given to help with depression and anxiety, and helps well with these. It will take 4-6 weeks for full effect to show itself. If your coordination is newly "off" and you have not been using any alcohol or other substances, please speak with your physician about this.
Poor coordination: In a healthy child, who has been thoroughly tested, and has no past medical history to suggest a cause, poor coordination is usually related to low muscle tone, genetics and can be helped by an early intervention program that includes occupational therapy and /or physical therapy. Remember there are all degrees of athletic success and not every child will become a major league baseball player.
Essential tremor: Can be alleviated by benzodiazepines.Get a more detailed answer ›
10 month child keeps her forefinger and middle fingers together (like spock) has good strength and coordination. Should I be concerned?
Fingers: As long as she has good coordination I wouldn't be too concerned.
