The Prairie Clinic, assumes a psychological/neurological perspective which theorizes that in many cases the above mentioned difficulties stem from a treatable central nervous system irregularity referred to as reflex delay syndrome. Dr.Wahlberg is currently developing a movement program.
Dr. Wahlberg is doing so through collaboration with researchers in the field working on movement based programs as well as through is own empirical research. (References)
Dr. Wahlberg is currently conducting research in the area of reflex delay syndrome and has found that the difficulties stem from neurological irregularities. These difficulties can be remediated through an exercise program that allows the brain a second chance to establish neurological interconnectivity.
