Gait Training

Gait training is designed to help people improve their ability to stand, walk, and run.

A person’s gait may become dysfunctional for many reasons, including injury, illness, fracture, surgery, pelvic malalignment, severe pronation, stroke, heart disease, immobility, and aging. Proper training can help a person overcome bad habits learned when walking for a long time on a dysfunctional limb, such as an arthritic hip, or after a less then great outcome from a knee surgery or ankle fracture.

Gait training helps strengthen muscles and joints, improves balance and coordination, improves posture, develops muscle memory, builds endurance, restores a normal step rhythm, and retrains the legs for repetitive motion.  It is the building block for a normal running stride.

There is a secondary benefit of gait training and improving a person’s ability to walk more comfortably, efficiently, and regularly: a reduction of other illness such as heart disease and osteoporosis, through weight bearing and physical activity.

What to Bring:

Your normal walking or running shoes, any orthotics or shoe inserts you use, shorts preferred, or close fitting yoga type pants.
