Gait and Stair Training
in Franklin, MA

At your first appointment, your Physical Therapist will perform a thorough evaluation and develop a personalized rehabilitation treatment program with you that may include Gait and Stair Training.

What is Gait Training?

Gait training is a type of physical therapy that helps people improve their ability to stand and walk. One goal of gait training is preventing falls. Gait training may be recommended after an illness, surgery, or injury or even to help a patient regain independence in walking. Gait training works to strengthen the muscles and joints in the lower body and back. As a result, patients will improve balance, improve posture, develop muscle memory, build endurance, and prepare the legs for repetitive motion. Gait Training also includes stair training, and instruction in the safe use of assistive devices such as canes, crutches, and walkers.

Benefits of Gait Training:

Gait training improves ability to stand, walk and even run by including activities to strengthen muscles and joints, improve posture and balance, build endurance, retrain legs for repetitive motion, and develop muscle memory.

What Our Clients Say

Wayne Brumbaugh

They are great. They listen to you when explaining your problem and give you a clear outline of what they are looking to do.

Christopher Borden

My son and I both suffered injuries at approximately the same time. Although I’m sure it was slightly inconvenient for the front office staff, they always managed to schedule our appointments together or extremely close to make it easy for us to coordinate our visits. This was much appreciated. By the 2nd visit, they knew us by sight and had all our check-in materials ready to go upon arrival.

I think between the two of us, we experienced every clinician on site and every single one was knowledgeable about us and our condition, whether or not they were the primary therapist. They each brought a unique style to the session that not only built off of previous sessions but also incorporated new exercises and ideas that continued to challenge both of us. This stands in direct contrast with another PT office in town that I had used for a knee injury previously where I did not have the same warm experience. Although I hope to never go back, if I have to, Professional Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine will be my first choice.
