The conventional wisdom is that crawling (or cross-lateral locomotion) otherwise known as quadrupedal movement is for babies while walking is for adults. But there’s growing evidence that crawling – one of the most basic developmental movement patterns – has surprising physical and mental benefits for adults as well.
The benefits of crawling and quadrupedal movements.
One of the first actions of locomotion that we'll ever undertake as humans is crawling – moving on all four limbs across an even or uneven surface, usually around six months to 1 year old. But it's often neglected once we leave childhood. By the time we are adults, many of us have completely forgotten how to crawl.
