My bearded dragon hardly moves. He's dragging himself along

Customer Question

Hi, my bearded dragon hardly moves. He's dragging himself along with his head and drags his legs behind him. He's eating fine and has regular bowel movements. I bathe him once every two days and use calci dust and uvb. What could be wrong with him?
