Gait re-education is a form of Gait training wherein a person is re-trained to achieve his/her walking patterns to full potential. Any Neurological, Peadiatrics and Musculoskeletal Conditions can affect the walking pattern resulting to risk of falls and other injuries. In some cases Gait Re-education is recommended Post Surgery.
Learning to walk correctly again ensures that the body moves in the way it is designed and allows for correct functioning of joints and muscles.
