Strengthen Your Walking Ability
Gait/walking analysis and training are very important parts of treatment for patients with balance disorders. It is especially important with patients who suffer from neurological disorders such as peripheral neuropathy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and stroke.
At the M&M Physical Therapy Center for Balance and Gait, our qualified physical therapists observe and study body movements, body mechanics, and muscle activity during gait. Your therapist will break down the gait cycle/pattern and identify compensation techniques. This information is then used to assess, plan, and develop your treatment plan.
Through treatment, your therapist will instruct you on stretching and strengthening activities for appropriate muscle groups. Balance activities, and postural training will also be included. Through training and corrective practice, our therapists will help you learn a correct gait pattern.
