Your doctor may recommend gait training if you’ve had an illness or injury that affects your ability to get around
how gait training works
Gait training is a type of physical therapy offered at our REHAB location. Holding great potential to improve your ability to stand and walk your doctor may recommend gait training if you’ve had an illness or injury that affects your ability to get around. It may help you gain independence in walking, even if you need an adaptive device.
health benefits of gait training
Gait training is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on improving an individual’s walking pattern. It’s particularly beneficial for those recovering from injuries, surgeries, or neurological conditions that affect mobility. This therapy enhances balance, stability, and muscle strength, reducing the risk of falls and promoting a more efficient and natural walking motion. Gait training can significantly improve an individual’s quality of life by restoring functional mobility and increasing independence.
gait training frequency
The frequency and treatment for gait training depend on the individual’s condition and goals. For those recovering from injuries or surgeries, sessions may initially occur several times a week to address gait abnormalities and improve mobility. Over time, the frequency may decrease as the individual’s walking pattern improves. The duration of treatment can vary widely, with some individuals needing only a few weeks of gait training, while others may require longer-term therapy. Consultation with a physical therapist will determine the ideal frequency and duration of gait training sessions.
