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.

Michael Kelly

Professional Physical Therapy is the absolute best!
Dr Pratt and his Legion of PTA’s (Crystal, Sue, Amber & Tracy), assisted by Julia, Anthony & Jackie are all very technologically knowledgeable and experienced in the best Physical Therapy methods to return you to good health.
Their Exercise Programs are both Professional Challenging and understanding of the Patients capabilities. Each Program is uniquely targeted to challenge you to do your best to return to good health and mobility in the shortest time possible. They do so with high energy, dedication and compassion for each Patient under their care.
I also want to recognize the entire staff and complement them on the friendly, warm and family atmosphere created. From the minute you walk in the door you are greeted with a smile by an administration staff who is very attentive to insurance coverages and scheduling. They work closely with each Patient to develop a schedule which works for you.
Thank you all at Professional Physical Therapy for your hard work in strengthening and extending my range of motion in my shoulder and current commitment to accomplishing the same with my new right hip. Together you are very a special group of in the field of professional physical therapy!
Sincerely,
