What is your gait?

When it comes to assessing a client when they come into your office, observation and gait is a great place to start. Many of a persons locomotor dysfunctions can be observed in a person’s gait. Some causes of changes in a person’s gait could be one of the following:

- Client could have pathology or injury to a joint.
- They may occur as compensations from injury or pathology in other joints ipsilaterally (same side) or contralaterally (opposite side).

There are numerous types of gait such as antalgic, arthrogenic, ataxic, and many more. You’ll see in this video below the different types of gait, one type that is common in stroke victims is a hemiplegic gait. Hemiplegic gait is when one hemisphere of the motor cortex is affected. Research shows that it is very hard to change a persons gait, however for therapist its the best place to start when trying to consider your treatment protocol. This gives us an idea of what orthopedic and neurologic components that may need to be treated with table mobilization, isometrics, or neuromuscular reeducation using PKT resistance bands. The bands are one of the best ways to create locomotor learning by increasing awareness and ingraining new motor sensory patterns.

What are some things you guys are looking for when doing your initial observation and gait assessments? In our PKT system we take a systematic approach, starting at the feet and moving up ensuring we’ve covered all sides, planes of motion and observation testing for signs of orthopedic or neurologic compensations.

Take some time this weekend to observe someones walking and see if how their gait looks. Let us know what you observe!
