Cuevas Medek Exercises

What is CME?

Stands for Cuevas Medek Exercises
Developed by Ramon Cuevas in the 1970’s
Uses the influence of gravity and distal support to recruit muscle activation

Why CME?

A type of treatment technique that can be used which:

  • Gradually exposes the child to gravity through progressively more distal support
  • Aids in developing gross motor skills and evokes postural control
  • Provokes absent automatic motor responses
  • Integrates stretches into the exercises
  • Does not necessarily require the active participation of the child

Who Can Benefit?

Children from 3 months of age to approximately 8 years old or until independent walking is achieved
Appropriate for children with:

  • Delays in gross motor skills
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down Syndrome
  • Hypotonia
  • Global Developmental Delay
  • Seizure Disorders
  • And more

…Ask our therapists if your child would be appropriate for CME therapy
