Movement disorder is characterized by repeated, rhythmic, purposeless movements.
Movement disorders occur as a result of neurological injury, disease and developmental disorder.
Neurological activity is in an undivided relation with muscular activity.
1. Every physical activity is at the same time the brain activity.
2. When something is wrong with the brain activity, at the same time there is something wrong with the muscular activity.
Every movement of the body or part of the body, voluntary or involuntary is a muscular activity and at the same time the nervous system activity.
Neurological disorder and movement disorder are in a causal relation.
a) Involuntary movement disorder is caused by neurological damage.
b) Voluntary movement disorder is caused by doing physical activities with no purpose.
Voluntary movement disorder sooner or later will cause a neurological disorder.
Exercises on Bouncy Castles, Trampolines, Stationary Bikes and Treadmills are the types of physical activities that consist of repeated, rhythmic, purposeless movements (voluntary movement disorders).
A. Walking, running, jumping, crawling, swimming etc. have purposes for travelling from one place to another.
B. Walking and running on treadmills has no purpose.
Every physical activity is at the same time brain activity (the activity of the neuromuscular control centre and the activity of the neuromuscular peripheral system).
While performing physical activities on the treadmill, stationary bike, trampoline and inflatable bouncy castle, the brain (neuromuscular control centre) and the neuromuscular peripheral system do something that is not supposed to do (brain does something that has no purpose).
Children start to talk around the time when they start to walk.
Early neurological development is connected with early motor skill development.
Delay in early motor skill development is connected with a delay in neurological development.
If the underdevelopment of motor skills persists, it will result in movement disorder and impaired movement.
Voluntary movement disorder, particularly over a prolonged period of voluntary movement disorder sooner or later will cause a neurological disorder.
a) Neurological disorders trigger movement disorders (involuntary movement disorder).
b) Voluntary movement disorders will sooner or later trigger a lasting neurological disorder.
Prolonged time of voluntary movement disorder negatively affects already learned/acquired motor skills.
Improper Development of Motor Skill and Movement Disorder
Till recently, everywhere in the world, in urban areas and as well as in rural areas, children were developing their motor skills by being physically active in their living environment.
Nowadays, children in the developed world are spending a significant percentage of their playing time on bouncy castles, trampolines, stationary bikes and treadmills.
In the last two to three decades, many children living in the developed world are exposed to artificial environments like stationary bikes, treadmills and trampolines and artificial-inflatable environments like bouncy castles. This new environment is different from any previous new environments that humans have confronted.
Examples of movement disorders (voluntary movement disorders) are exercises on stationary bikes, treadmills, trampolines and bouncy castles and they lead to the development of useless physical skills (weird motor skill) that has a negative effect on the children’s physical and mental development.
Neurological disorder and movement disorder that is caused by the development of purposeless motor skills is permanent as long as the weird motor skill isn’t replaced with appropriate motor skills.
