Gait Training

Gait training is necessary to help a crutchespatient gain proficient ambulation within and outside the home and is necessary when there is an orthopaedic impairment.

Conditions requiring gait training include the following:

  • ┬ápain that causes distortion of the normal gait
  • joint stiffness
  • muscle weakness
  • limb deformity
  • spasticity
  • loss of sensory input

Treatment involves strengthening, balance training, proprioceptive
exercises, education in normal mechanics and the use of assistive
devices, and mobilizing if necessary for the impairment.
