Gait abnormality or dysfunction is a deviation from normal walking (gait). Commonly, gait dysfunctions can be associated with impairment of the nervous and/or the musculoskeletal systems, post-incident, or surgery. It is important to retrain gait mechanics post-injury in order to restore function, decrease compensatory patterns and return to sports and recreational activities
Research has shown that gait abnormalities are associated with an increased risk of falls in older adults. The combination of manual therapy and Pilates exercises used by our physical therapists has shown to dramatically help improve gait and decrease risks of falling by increasing the patient's strength, coordination, and range of motion in a coordinated fashion.
