Many people experience difficulty with walking secondary to aging or injury. Gait problems can be complex and involve a number of factors, including injury or arthritis in the lower extremities, back pain, foot problems, post-surgical status, strength and flexibility deficits, deconditioning, muscle imbalances, neurological and balance issues and mechanical deviations. Our therapists assess you in all these areas and implement a treatment program designed to address your specific problems so that you can walk with more confidence, manage independently and safely in your home and return to community and recreational activities. Included in gait training is education on proper use of assistive devices such as walkers, crutches and canes, and help with transitioning from one to the other as your walking improves.
