When we watch patients walk and run, called gait evaluation, it is the ideal time to check how various treatment modalities change for better or worse the stablity of gait. Common conditions that are evaluated by gait evaluation on a routine basis are:
- Shoe selection
- Power Lacing
- Various Shoe Modifications
- Insert Selection and Possible Modifications
- Muscle Strengthening (seen over an extended period)
- Overal Improvement in Tone/Function fo the Lower Extremity through Pilates, Physical Therapy, Yoga, and other disciplines that can change gait patterns.
