Gait Training

In-home Gait Training

Our therapists use evidence-based techniques, such as external cueing and task-specific training, to improve gait patterns and reduce the risk of falls. We also emphasize the importance of home exercise programs and provide ongoing support to ensure continued progress. Additionally, our therapists have specialized training and experience working with seniors, including those with neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, which allows us to provide targeted and effective gait training interventions.

At Synaptic, we perform gait analysis as part of our comprehensive assessment. During the gait analysis, we assess balance, strength, and flexibility to identify any areas of weakness or impairment that may be contributing to gait abnormalities. Our experienced therapists use clinical observation and manual techniques to evaluate gait patterns, including speed, stride length, and cadence. Based on our findings, we develop personalized treatment plans that incorporate gait training exercises and other evidence-based interventions to improve overall mobility and function.

Our Approach

Synaptic’s approach to gait training is personalized and patient-centered. We start by assessing each individual’s specific needs and limitations through a comprehensive evaluation. Based on the evaluation, we develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses the patient’s goals, challenges, and strengths.

Our gait training program includes a variety of exercises and techniques, including balance training, strength training, range of motion exercises, and gait training with assistive devices. We also utilize external cueing and other evidence-based techniques to help improve gait mechanics and reduce fall risk.

Throughout the treatment process, our therapists work closely with patients to ensure they are comfortable and engaged in the therapy program. We monitor progress regularly and make adjustments to the treatment plan as needed to ensure patients are meeting their goals and seeing improvements in their gait function.

Gait training can provide numerous benefits for individuals with mobility issues, including improved balance, coordination, and posture. It can also help to increase muscle strength and endurance, which can be particularly important for older adults or individuals recovering from an injury or surgery. Additionally, gait training can help to reduce the risk of falls and improve overall confidence and independence with walking. At Synaptic, our therapists are trained to provide personalized gait training programs tailored to each individual’s specific needs and goals.

Gait training is an aspect of physical therapy that focuses on improving an individual’s ability to walk. This therapy can be beneficial for people with various conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, stroke, and other neurological disorders that affect mobility.

At Synaptic, our gait training therapy is tailored to each individual’s needs, with the goal of improving their overall quality of life. We take a holistic approach to therapy, considering not just physical impairments, but also cognitive and psychosocial factors that may impact mobility.

It is important to note that gait training therapy should be done under the guidance of a licensed physical therapist and tailored to the individual’s specific needs and goals. At Synaptic, we work closely with our clients and their healthcare providers to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses their unique challenges and helps them achieve their goals.
