Gait Training

Gait training is an important aspect of physiotherapy. Gait or human locomotion is produced by coordinated movements of body segments as a whole. It is the forward progression of the body, based on the reciprocal movements of the legs. A normal human gait requires muscle power in the legs, trunk stability, proprioception, balance and vision. Pathological gait may be due to neurological or orthopaedic causes.

Reasons For Pathological Gait :

Changes in Position
Pain During Movement
Loss of Muscle Power

Skeletal Deformities
Incoordination of Muscles
Increased or Fluctuating Muscle Tone
