Question: 15 yr old male w/o pendulum arm movement while walking. - Wed Jan 21, 2009 7:58 am

My son, 15, does not swing his arms while walking. Does this mean anything neurologically?

Many people walk and don't swing their arms. As long as he is walking without difficulty I don't think there is a problem,
