What is Movement and Gait Therapy?
Gait and movement therapy combine several disciplines of physical medicine to help improve your mobility, flexibility and overall activity level. Designed to be easily customized for everyone from high level athletes to children with neurological disorders, movement therapy seeks to help retrain your body to move easier and reduce strain on your muscles and joints.
Gait therapy has long been a cornerstone in injury and post-surgery rehabilitation, as people re-learn how to walk and move after suffering a period of immobility. But now, studies have show that even perfectly healthy bodies are walking, running and moving inefficiently, creating more stress and strain on the body than is necessary. By correcting these issues in movement, and helping reorient the body to healthy, more natural movements, you can reduce the impact of movement, and channel more energy and strength into every activity.
Who is Movement and Gait Therapy Right for?
Maybe you’ve tried lots of things and worked with plenty of people, but you just haven’t gotten where you want to be.
Maybe you don’t like the options some people are laying out for you.
Maybe you wonder if there are things you could learn that could improve your health and avoid or reduce medical interventions.
Maybe you don’t want to be one of the 1.4 million people in the US each year that has surgery to replace worn out knees and hips, or repair damaged backs.
Maybe you’re scared you’ll have to give up the activities you love to do—or maybe you already have and you’re afraid you’ll never get back in action.
What if you learned more about yourself and learned to improve your movement? That starts with increasing your awareness of what you’re really doing.
