Your Physical Coordination

What Causes Poor Body Coordination?

Poor body coordination can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'very serious'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose poor body coordination, we could:
  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "poor body coordination" as a symptom.  Here are seven possibilities:
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Epstein-Barr Virus
  • Mercury Toxicity
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Silicone Disease

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
very angry/hostile disposition
gums that bleed very easily
sensitivity to bright light
chronic mild mouth soreness/sores
low energy/stamina
confirmed Parkinson's disease
shoulder tightness
constant fatigue
hand tremors
regular episodes of diarrhea
slow reaction time
... and more than 120 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of poor body coordination:
Cause Probability Status
Parkinson's Disease 95% Confirm
Silicone Disease 28% Unlikely
Epstein-Barr Virus 16% Unlikely
Guillain-Barre Syndrome 3% Ruled out
Mercury Toxicity 1% Ruled out
Hypoglycemia 1% Ruled out
Multiple Sclerosis 1% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the General Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about your physical coordination:
Body coordination. How good is your control over your physical movements, for example picking up something very small or catching a ball?
Possible responses:
→ Very poor - I'm very clumsy / drop things
→ Somewhat worse than average
→ Average / don't know
→ Better than average
→ Excellent - Very accurate control of my movements
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either poor bodily coordination or good bodily coordination, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Guillain-Barre Syndrome

The patient may have difficulty holding and manipulating objects, such as buttons and toothbrushes.

Parkinson's Disease

Those suffering from Parkinson's disease often have difficulty in performing simple tasks.
