Message length 300 characters recommended

Hypotonia is a fancy word for low muscle tone. Our family friend's daughter has down syndrome and Hypotonia is a common symptom.

There are a lot of causes for low muscle tone. It can be the result of an injury or illness. Brain damage at birth like lack of oxygen can cause it but so can genetic disorders like down syndrome. In some cases kids are just born with poor muscle control.

Usually kids get occupational, physical, and speech therapy to treat it. Some kids with severe disorders may need a wheel chair.
