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.

Changes in Position
Pain During Movement
Loss of Muscle Power
Skeletal Deformities
Incoordination of Muscles
Increased or Fluctuating Muscle Tone
