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.

Thank you ProPt for making me better and improving my way of life.

Before starting physical therapy here at ProPt, I had been experiencing knee pain during activities I enjoyed doing, like running. I was very frustrated because I could not participate in the physical activities I love to do! But ProPt changed that Dr.Patt, Sue, and Amber all helped me get better to the point where I can now run and enjoy all the physical activity I loved. I am so grateful for the care I received from ProPT and the awesome staff! Thank you ProPt for making me better and improving my way of life.

I never thought that physical therapy could help with vertigo but after a few sessions, my vertigo completely resolved!

After years of suffering from vertigo, my primary care doctor recommended I try physical therapy. I never thought that physical therapy could help with vertigo but after a few sessions, my vertigo completely resolved! I would recommend trying physical therapy for anyone who suffers from vertigo. The team here at Professional PT has been excellent.
