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.
