Postural control is the ability to maintain body alignment. Adequate postural control is important in order for babies to reach their developmental milestones, from sitting upright to crawling and finally to standing. It helps them maintain their balance and stability as they move around their environment. They achieve postural control as they learn to push against the forces of gravity (Case-Smith 2001).
