Our gait is foundational to daily life, influencing mobility and overall well-being. Yet, challenges, whether from injury, neurological conditions, or biomechanical issues, can significantly impact quality of life. At Advance Physical Therapy in Buffalo, our specialized Gait Therapy in Buffalo takes a targeted approach to enhance balance, posture, and coordination during walking.
Tailored Solutions for Your Gait Challenges
Whether your gait issues stem from injury, medical conditions, or other reasons, our Gait Therapy in Buffalo provides personalized solutions.
Gait Therapy Exercises
Crucial for improving stability and addressing biomechanical issues, our targeted exercises aim to foster a stable stride, reduce fall risks, and enhance overall mobility and confidence in daily activities.
- Range Of Motion Exercises: Focus on recovering and preserving a normal range of motion (ROM) in your joints. Exercises may include ankle pumps, calf stretches with a towel, heel slides to improve knee ROM, hamstring stretches, and hip rotation stretches.
- Lower Extremity Strengthening: Address weaknesses in hips, knees, or ankles that impede safe walking. Exercises like straight leg raises, quad sets, ankle strengthening with resistance bands, mini squats, and step-ups are incorporated for lower extremity strength.
- Balance and Proprioception Exercises: Essential for enhancing balance and proprioception, exercises include single leg stance, single leg stance on an unsteady surface, single leg stance with eyes closed, tandem standing and walking, and single leg stance on a BOSU or BAPS board.
