Specific treatment for hypotonia will be determined by your child's physician based on
• your child's age, overall health, and medical history
• the extent of the condition
• the underlying cause of the condition
• your child's tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
• expectations for the course of the condition
• your opinion or preference.
No specific therapy is required to treat benign congenital hypotonia, but children with this problem may periodically need treatment for common occurrences associated with hypotonia, such as recurrent joint dislocations.
Treatment programs to help increase muscle strength and sensory stimulation programs are developed once the cause of your child's hypotonia is established. Such programs usually involve physical therapy through an early intervention or school-based program among other forms of therapy.
