  • Shoulder Pain
  • Hip & Knee Pain
  • Foot & Ankle Pain
  • Hand, Wrist & Elbow Pain
  • Arthritis Pain
  • Sciatica Pain

  • Pain Management

Balance & Gait Disorders

Med1Care Therapy Partner specializes in providing expert physical therapy services to address balance and gait problems. Indications of these balance and gait issues include difficulties in walking, getting up from a seated position, or bending down to tie shoelaces.

Walking is a multiplex activity that requires the coordination of various systems, including the brain, bones, muscles, and cardiovascular system. Any challenges in these systems can significantly affect one’s walking ability and balance.

Effective treatment is crucial since gait conditions increase the risk of injuries resulting from falls. Also, gait disorders might serve as potential indicators of underlying medical conditions, such as neurological disorders, dementia, or musculoskeletal disorders.

Causes of Balance & Gait Problems

Balance and gait conditions can result from various factors, including the weakening of leg and core muscles.

Each person’s gait is unique, and symptoms can vary significantly. However, observing how the body moves can offer insights into the underlying reasons for the gait problem.

Gait disorders may stem from different causes such as arthritis, injuries, pain, weakness in the lower limbs and feet, heart conditions, respiratory issues, and obesity.

There are six common types of gait conditions (classified by underlying cause):

Med1Care receptionist welcome.
Hemiplegic Gait

Hemiplegic gait, typically caused by a stroke, affects one side of the body. The arm on the affected side ceases to swing during walking, and the leg is dragged in a semi-circle to move forward.

Diplegic Gait

Diplegic gait, often caused by stroke, head trauma, or cerebral palsy, impacts both sides of the body. It involves inward turning of the ankles as the hips and knees bend, resulting in a swinging effect in the steps.

Neuropathic Gait (foot drop)

Neuropathic gait (foot drop), usually caused by conditions like multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or peripheral neuropathy. This condition leads to the foot dropping while stepping forward, necessitating higher knee lifting to prevent toe dragging on the ground.

Myopathic Gait (waddling gait)

Myopathic gait (waddling gait), typically caused by muscular dystrophy, muscle disease, weakness in the pelvic area, or spinal muscle weakness. Walking with this gait resembles a side-to-side movement.

Ataxic Gait

Ataxic gait, often caused by alcohol intoxication, medication, or brain injury. Walking with this gait produces staggering and weaving movements, and balance may be affected with swaying while standing.

Parkinsonian Gait

Parkinsonian gait, commonly associated with Parkinson’s disease. It is characterized by small steps, forward stooping, and a bent neck and back.


How We Help

At Med1Care Therapy Partner, our skilled therapists are well-versed in treating balance and gait issues, offering comprehensive physical therapy tailored to address these concerns. Your personalized treatment plan may include targeted exercises to strengthen the muscles responsible for standing, enhancing stability, and reducing the likelihood of falls. Additionally, we can assist you in selecting and utilizing appropriate assistive devices to maintain mobility and enhance your overall quality of life. Our team may also recommend supplements and medications to promote bone health, minimizing the risk of fractures in case of a fall. We collaborate closely with your physician to ensure a coordinated approach to your recovery journey.

Osteoporosis Program

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s Osteoporosis Program is designed to combat severe bone thinning caused by cartilage wear and tear, aiming to prevent fractures in the hip and spine, minimize health problems, and improve mobility.

The human body constantly renews bones through a process known as modeling. Generally, bone density reaches its peak by the age of thirty. However, there are various ways to reduce bone loss, including medications and lifestyle choices.

Osteoporosis-related bone loss often goes unnoticed until it becomes severe. Common symptoms of osteoporosis can include back pain, loss of height, stooped posture, and broken bones, particularly in the spine or hip. In severe cases, even daily activities like coughing, standing, sitting, or hugging can precipitate fractures.

To minimize any discomfort, it is essential to maintain open communication with your therapist. They will work closely with you to ensure that the exercises and techniques used are appropriate for your individual needs and comfort level. By providing feedback and discussing your pain levels, the therapist can make adjustments to your treatment plan to promote pain-free movement during your daily activities.

There are distinct differences between physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT), although both disciplines play crucial roles in helping individuals improve their overall well-being and functional abilities.

Physical therapy primarily focuses on addressing physical impairments, injuries, or conditions that affect a person’s movement and mobility. Physical therapists use a variety of techniques, exercises, and modalities to alleviate pain, improve range of motion, enhance strength, and promote overall physical function. They often work with patients who have experienced musculoskeletal injuries, undergone surgery or are managing chronic pain or conditions.

On the other hand, occupational therapy is more focused on helping individuals engage in meaningful activities and perform the essential tasks of daily life. Occupational therapists work with clients to assess and address physical, psychosocial, behavioral, cognitive, or sensory challenges that may affect their ability to participate in activities such as self-care, work, school, and leisure. They help individuals regain or develop skills needed for independent living, provide adaptations or assistive devices, and create strategies to enhance overall occupational performance.

Habilitative and rehabilitative care are two distinct approaches in healthcare, each addressing different aspects of patient needs.

Rehabilitation focuses on re-establishing or regaining the ability to perform tasks that were lost or impaired due to injury, illness, or other factors. It aims to restore functional abilities and enhance the quality of life by utilizing various therapies, exercises, and interventions. Rehabilitation is often recommended for individuals recovering from surgery, managing chronic conditions, or rehabilitating from injuries.

On the other hand, habilitative care is more focused on developing skills that have not yet been learned or fully developed. It is designed to assist individuals in acquiring new skills or improving existing ones. Habilitative services aim to maintain functional status and teach strategies to enhance overall function in daily living activities. These services are particularly beneficial for individuals with developmental delays, learning disabilities, or conditions that require ongoing support in acquiring necessary skills.

Yes, physical therapy can be safely pursued during pregnancy to address various musculoskeletal conditions that commonly arise, such as back pain, pelvic pain, and joint discomfort. These conditions can significantly impact a pregnant woman’s well-being and overall quality of life. By seeking physical therapy, tailored to their specific needs, pregnant individuals can effectively manage these issues and improve their overall physical function.

A skilled physical therapist can develop a personalized treatment plan that may involve exercises, manual therapy, and patient education to target the underlying causes of pain and discomfort. The focus is on promoting optimal posture, strengthening muscles, and alleviating tension in the lower back and hips. Additionally, physical therapists can provide valuable guidance on safe body mechanics, appropriate lifting techniques, and lifestyle modifications to prevent and manage pregnancy-related conditions. Prior consultation with healthcare providers and physical therapists is advised to determine the suitability and effectiveness of physical therapy for managing musculoskeletal conditions during pregnancy.
