Gait Training

Gait training is designed to regain or improve your ability to be mobile. Your gait is your way of walking. Gait training is different for someone recovering from a musculoskeletal disorder than for someone who recently had a stroke. Gait training is used to improve mobility in those who have had hip/knee/ankle surgeries or injuries with immobilization periods. Gait training is also used for those who have neurological disorders, brain injuries, amputations, and lower extremity fractures or people just wanting to improve their running performance.
During gait training, bodyweight support systems and stabilizers can be used in conjunction with muscle and endurance building exercises to develop or retrain
muscle memory.
