Gait training is learning how to walk again after injury or with a disability, and it is something all physical therapists are trained to do.
At Ortho PT, we offer tools such as parallel bars, treadmills and other support devices to use as an aide until you are ready to move more independently – the ultimate goal of gait training.
Gait training can be useful for people with or who have had the following conditions:
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Cerebral Palsy
- Parkinson’s disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- After surgery
- Sports injury
Your physical therapist will assess your walking through a series of tests in order to decide on the best method of treatment for you.
