Your Physical Coordination

What Causes Poor Body Coordination?

Poor body coordination can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'life-threatening'.  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 eight possibilities:
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Epstein-Barr Virus
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Mercury Toxicity
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • A Weight Problem
  • 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:
frequent bizarre dreams
infrequent earaches
reduced sense of smell
specific muscle weakness
chronic mouth soreness/sores
sugar/sweet craving
sensitivity to bright light
weak appetite
carbohydrate craving during cycle
preauricular node problems
impaired ability to walk
... and more than 130 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
Epstein-Barr Virus 98% Confirm
Hypoglycemia 28% Unlikely
Guillain-Barre Syndrome 15% Unlikely
Mercury Toxicity 0% Ruled out
Multiple Sclerosis 0% Ruled out
Parkinson's Disease 0% Ruled out
A Weight Problem 0% Ruled out
Silicone Disease 0% 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
→ I have better than average dexterity
→ 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.

Problems Caused By Being Overweight

The more overweight we are, the harder it comes to perform tasks that require fine motor skill such as tying our shoelaces, holding a pencil or tapping a cellphone screen.
