Balance & Gait Problems have various reasons for inception and it arises when the vestibular system, which controls our very balanced, gets compromised. Also, underlying issues of the musculoskeletal system, as well as various neurological issues, can cause them
Hemiplegic Gait – Balance disorder that affects only one side of body.
Diplegic Gait – Balance disorder that affects both sides of the body.
Neuropathic Gait – Also known as Foot Drop; in this disorder, one of the feet flops down and hence the patient has to walk by holding the knee high to avoid dragging of toes.
Myopathic Gait – Or Waddling Gait, this condition makes the patient waddle side-wise due to pelvic weakness.
Ataxic Gait – This disorder makes the patient stagger while walking & he or she cannot move in a straight line.
Parkinsonian Gait – In this disorder, the patient stoops forward with the neck and back bent. They usually can only take smaller strides.
