One thought on “What can be done to improve a gait disorder?

    To diagnose the disorder, the doctor will first observe your gait. The cause of a gait disorder can be multiple and a fewtimes the causes overlap. The chance of a gait disorder increases with age, as older people seem to experience more conditions that cause an abnormal gait and typically have weaker muscles, delayed reaction and less muscle coordination than younger people. You should also receive instruction in fall prevention. Assistive devices which include canes and walkers may help in a few cases in which balance is a problem. Physical therapy and strengthening exercises may be appropriate in other cases to improve balance, strength and flexibility. It depends on the cause.
