What should I know about prosthetic gait training?

Prosthetic gait training will include activities to not only improve gait mechanics, but also increase your confidence and safety in navigating across different terrains and around different obstacles with your prosthetic device.

In fact, as stated by Physiopedia, “The aim of the rehabilitation is to aid the amputee to gain independence at the highest level they can, with the most efficient gait possible.”

Our Venice, FL physical therapists can also help you work on balance, so you can mitigate your fall risk and work to improve your balance and body symmetry. This will make it easier for you to stand evenly and distribute weight on your prosthesis without feeling uneasy.

Additionally, your physical therapist can show you how to exercise safely with your new prosthesis. With evenly distributed body weight, your prosthesis can actually help keep your heart pumping naturally during exercise. Therefore, by staying in motion without feeling unsteady or easily fatigued, you will be able to maintain a healthy and safe exercise plan, even with your new device!
