Gait: Manner or style of walking.Gait Disorders, Neurologic: Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.Gait Ataxia: Impairment of the ability to coordinate the movements required for normal ambulation (WALKING) which may result from impairments of motor function or sensory feedback. This condition may be associated with BRAIN DISEASES (including CEREBELLAR DISEASES and BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES); SPINAL CORD DISEASES; or PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES.Gait Apraxia: Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.Walking: An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.Biomechanical Phenomena: The properties, processes, and behavior of biological systems under the action of mechanical forces.Postural Balance: A POSTURE in which an ideal body mass distribution is achieved. Postural balance provides the body carriage stability and conditions for normal functions in stationary position or in movement, such as sitting, standing, or walking.Orthotic Devices: Apparatus used to support, align, prevent, or correct deformities or to improve the function of movable parts of the body.Ankle Joint: The joint that is formed by the inferior articular and malleolar articular surfaces of the TIBIA; the malleolar articular surface of the FIBULA; and the medial malleolar, lateral malleolar, and superior surfaces of the TALUS.Locomotion: Movement or the ability to move from one place or another. It can refer to humans, vertebrate or invertebrate animals, and microorganisms.Walkers: Walking aids generally having two handgrips and four legs.Foot: The distal extremity of the leg in vertebrates, consisting of the tarsus (ANKLE); METATARSUS; phalanges; and the soft tissues surrounding these bones.Accidental Falls: Falls due to slipping or tripping which may result in injury.AmputeesKnee Joint: A synovial hinge connection formed between the bones of the FEMUR; TIBIA; and PATELLA.Paresis: A general term referring to a mild to moderate degree of muscular weakness, occasionally used as a synonym for PARALYSIS (severe or complete loss of motor function). In the older literature, paresis often referred specifically to paretic neurosyphilis (see NEUROSYPHILIS). "General paresis" and "general paralysis" may still carry that connotation. Bilateral lower extremity paresis is referred to as PARAPARESIS.Hemiplegia: Severe or complete loss of motor function on one side of the body. This condition is usually caused by BRAIN DISEASES that are localized to the cerebral hemisphere opposite to the side of weakness. Less frequently, BRAIN STEM lesions; cervical SPINAL CORD DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; and other conditions may manifest as hemiplegia. The term hemiparesis (see PARESIS) refers to mild to moderate weakness involving one side of the body.Lameness, Animal: A departure from the normal gait in animals.Acceleration: An increase in the rate of speed.Range of Motion, Articular: The distance and direction to which a bone joint can be extended. Range of motion is a function of the condition of the joints, muscles, and connective tissues involved. Joint flexibility can be improved through appropriate MUSCLE STRETCHING EXERCISES.Crutches: Wooden or metal staffs designed to aid a person in walking. (UMDNS,1999)Artificial Limbs: Prosthetic replacements for arms, legs, and parts thereof.Cerebral Palsy: A heterogeneous group of nonprogressive motor disorders caused by chronic brain injuries that originate in the prenatal period, perinatal period, or first few years of life. The four major subtypes are spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed cerebral palsy, with spastic forms being the most common. The motor disorder may range from difficulties with fine motor control to severe spasticity (see MUSCLE SPASTICITY) in all limbs. Spastic diplegia (Little disease) is the most common subtype, and is characterized by spasticity that is more prominent in the legs than in the arms. Pathologically, this condition may be associated with LEUKOMALACIA, PERIVENTRICULAR. (From Dev Med Child Neurol 1998 Aug;40(8):520-7)Parkinson Disease: A progressive, degenerative neurologic disease characterized by a TREMOR that is maximal at rest, retropulsion (i.e. a tendency to fall backwards), rigidity, stooped posture, slowness of voluntary movements, and a masklike facial expression. Pathologic features include loss of melanin containing neurons in the substantia nigra and other pigmented nuclei of the brainstem. LEWY BODIES are present in the substantia nigra and locus coeruleus but may also be found in a related condition (LEWY BODY DISEASE, DIFFUSE) characterized by dementia in combination with varying degrees of parkinsonism. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1059, pp1067-75)Robotics: The application of electronic, computerized control systems to mechanical devices designed to perform human functions. Formerly restricted to industry, but nowadays applied to artificial organs controlled by bionic (bioelectronic) devices, like automated insulin pumps and other prostheses.ShoesHip Joint: The joint that is formed by the articulation of the head of FEMUR and the ACETABULUM of the PELVIS.Weight-Bearing: The physical state of supporting an applied load. This often refers to the weight-bearing bones or joints that support the body's weight, especially those in the spine, hip, knee, and foot.Leg: The inferior part of the lower extremity between the KNEE and the ANKLE.Foot Orthoses: Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.Canes: Sticks used as walking aids. The canes may have three or four prongs at the end of the shaft.Mobility Limitation: Difficulty in walking from place to place.Knee: A region of the lower extremity immediately surrounding and including the KNEE JOINT.Physical Therapy Modalities: Therapeutic modalities frequently used in PHYSICAL THERAPY SPECIALTY by PHYSICAL THERAPISTS or physiotherapists to promote, maintain, or restore the physical and physiological well-being of an individual.Exercise Therapy: A regimen or plan of physical activities designed and prescribed for specific therapeutic goals. Its purpose is to restore normal musculoskeletal function or to reduce pain caused by diseases or injuries.Electromyography: Recording of the changes in electric potential of muscle by means of surface or needle electrodes.Movement Disorders: Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.Lower Extremity: The region of the lower limb in animals, extending from the gluteal region to the FOOT, and including the BUTTOCKS; HIP; and LEG.

To better understand the gait disturbance in PD and the factors that contribute to falls, we quantitatively evaluated: 1 the relationship between gait variability a marker of fall risk in other populations, fall history, and other parkinsonian features, and 2 the effects of levodopa on these relationships. METHODS: The average stride time and stride-to-stride variability were measured using force-sensitive insoles during comfortable walking. Fall frequency, ...

Manhattan Office - 212 996-1900 Westchester Office - 914 328-3400. Gait Analysis: What To Expect Posted by Jenn F. on Friday, April 26th, 2013 Our ability to run seems as natural as our ability to walk. We simply put one foot before the other and speed it up a little. Yet some medical professionals say the thoughtlessness of running could yield big problems down the line. “So many runners just run. So many people look at a fitness magazine and say ‘I can do that.’ Then they get hurt and wonder why,” said Jay Dicharry, a physical therapist and author of Anatomy for Runners. “If we prepare ourselves we’ll do a better job,” he adds. Whether it’s posture, poor foot control or over-striding, a gait analysis can be a great place to start improving your step. While this type of test is most commonly associated with long-distance runners, it’s not exclusive. Research shows that gait analysis is important in assessing and treating conditions like Alzheimer’s and arthritis too. Who Needs ...

Abstract In 1999 Richards compared the accuracy of commercially available motion capture systems commonly used in biomechanics. In the last 12 years motion capture systems have continued to evolve and now include high-resolution CCD or CMOS image sensors, wireless communication, and high full frame sampling frequencies. Recently Natural Point introduced low cost cameras, which on face value appear to be suitable as at very least a high quality teaching tool in biomechanics and possibly even a research tool when coupled with the correct calibration and tracking software. The aim of the study was therefore to compare both the linear accuracy and quality of angular kinematics from a typical high end motion capture system and a low cost ...

4 GAIT Standing and Walking. Gait Standing and Walking Gait is the pattern of walking over solid ground. One of the primary objectives of Project SMART is to restore standing and walking function to those would have lost this ability due to neural injury and disease. The gait group is developing technologies to achieve this goal. One of our technologies is a Smart Neural Prostheses SNP - orthotic hybrid. This technology combines an orthotic hybrid, for stability, with surface FES, for muscle stimulation. to generate a natural gait, owever, the system has to lock/unlock the joints of the brace and stimulate the correct muscle groups at just the right time. To do this, we have done two things. First, we have developed a human gait computer model which allows us to determine which muscles must be sequestered at which points of the gait cycle and second, developed kinematic sensors to detect where in the gait cycle the patient is. A second technology that ...

*  Gait training
Parallel bars may be used to help with gait training, especially in the early stages when a patient is first learning or re-learning to walk. Body-weight support BWS systems or unweighting devices are starting to become more and more popular and have been the subject of much study. Body-weight-supported treadmill training BWSTT enables individuals with motor deficits that have rendered them incapable of completely supporting their own body weight to practice and experience locomotion at physiological speeds. “Improving gait in multiple sclerosis using robot-assisted, body weight supported treadmill training.” 'Neurorehabilitation & Neural Repair', '22' 6, 661–671. doi:10.1177/1545968308318473 Depending on the severity of the person's impairment, one or more physiotherapists may be present to assist in maintaining the patient’s appropriate posture and moving their legs through as kinematically physiological a gait pattern as possible. “Effect of robot-assisted versus conventional ...

*  Foot drop
'Foot drop' is a gait abnormality in which the dropping of the forefoot happens due to weakness, irritation or damage to the common fibular nerve including the sciatic nerve, or paralysis of the muscles in the anterior portion of the lower leg. Foot drop can be caused by nerve damage alone or by muscle or spinal cord trauma, abnormal anatomy, toxins or disease. This nerve innervates the anterior muscles of the leg that are used during dorsi flexion of the ankle. The muscles that keep the ankle from supination as from an ankle sprain are also innervated by the peroneal nerve, and it is not uncommon to find weakness in this area as well. There are gradations of weakness that can be seen with foot drop, as follows: 0=complete paralysis, 1=flicker of contraction, 2=contraction with gravity eliminated alone, 3=contraction against gravity alone, 4=contraction against gravity and some resistance, and 5=contraction against powerful resistance normal power. Gait cycle. Drop foot is further characterized ...

Along with the race, they’re helping me train and gear up for the event. Excited. You bet. Gait Analysis. To help me gear up for the race, I got fit for shoes at the Nike Running store in New York City’s Flatiron district. I’ve had my gait analyzed four times before at various running stores and in physical therapy. I have it checked periodically in case my form has changed dramatically since I’ve gotten faster, been diagnosed with arthritis, injured my hip in a horseback riding fall, and all the other things that affect how I run. But year after year, gait analysis shows I’m a steadfast neutral shoe runner. This time I have video proof. But what does it mean ...

Abstract/OtherAbstract:. In healthy adults, the step length/cadence ratio is known to be constant around 6.5 mm/ step/min. It is a speed-independent index of the overall neuromotor gait control, in as much as it reflects energy expenditure, balance, between-step variability, and attentional demand. The speed independence of the WR in patients with multiple sclerosis MS , and its capacity to discriminate a across patients with MS and controls and b among disability levels in MS were tested. The WR was computed in 30 outpatients with MS walking at free speed range: 0.43-1.67 ms , and in 30 healthy ...

ITB Syndrome Rehab: Running Step Width Modification Dec 15, 2013 // by James Dunne // Running Technique Advice, Strength And Rehab For Endurance Athletes, Training Videos // 12 Comments. Spring marathon season is quickly approaching here in the northern hemisphere, and as such I’ll be bracing myself for the influx of keen runners presenting with the characteristic lateral knee pain of ITB Syndrome, as their weekly milage and long run duration increases. Over the years my approach to assessing and rehabilitating runners suffering from ITBS has evolved significantly. The most notable changes in approach coming as a result of developing an improved understanding of the biomechanical factors affecting the injury. Cross-Over Gait ITBS. While it’s vitally important to understand the biomechanics of both stance and swing phase of running gait, I feel a there’s often a lack of appreciation for how one affects the other. How the biomechanics of swing phase directly help to dictate those of the ...

More about stride length, rate, and “cruise control” for runners February 20th, 2011. Sure enough, stride length is a much bigger factor than stride frequency at typical jogging/running speeds, but the frequency curve is never perfectly flat. One of the most interesting points, I think, is that when his metronome cues runners to increase their stride rate, they also automatically increase stride length to arrive at the pace they’d naturally associate with the new cadence. It is absolutely true that some runners increase speed predominantly by increasing stride length. In fact, I would say that most runners that we have tested increase stride length more than frequency. However, all the runners we have tested also increase their frequency when they increase speed. We have yet to find a runner that only increases stride length or only increases stride frequency. For our ...

Thus, it is not clear of how much adults depend of the visual system. Therefore, the objective of this study is to analyze the gait stability of adults with normal vision in different visual conditions. Then, the different visual conditions were manipulated by using masks with automotive films that decrease the light passage until the eye. First, only the effect of the different visual conditions on stability and spatiotemporal parameters was analyzed. After that, the effect of two walking velocities and its interaction with the different visual conditions was tested.

Stride Length : How far can the elliptical actually adjust. There is a wide array of ranges when it comes to elliptical strides and the only way to find out what range will fit best is to try them out. A family of varying heights might find it very beneficial to have a wide range of stride lengths.

Uncategorized Shorter strides are easier on your knees and hips Shorter strides are easier on your knees and hips July 12th, 2010. Yet another study advocating shorter, quicker strides when you run has just been posted on the Medicine Science in Sports Exercise site. In this one, researchers at the University of Wisconsin had 45 recreational runners run on a treadmill at their preferred stride rate, then increased or decreased the stride rate by 5% and 10% keeping speed constant, so a faster stride rate resulted in shorter strides and vice versa. The results aren’t that surprising: Increasing stride rate by 5% or 10% reduced the mechanical energy absorbed by the knee joint by 20% or 34% for each stride. The ankle joint didn’t change much, while the hip absorbed significantly less energy only when the stride rate was increased by 10%. Last year, researchers from Iowa State used a computer model to predict that, for a 10% increase in stride rate, the benefits of gentler foot-strike outweigh the downside of ...

In covering the 45m to the first hurdle, the hurdler should predetermine through practice the number of strides he or she will take that results in a good transition to sprinting between the hurdles. Regardless, if the hurdler takes an even number of strides to the first hurdle, the lead leg should be in the back block at the start; if the hurdler takes an odd number of strides to the first hurdle, the lead leg will be in the front block. A 25-stride approach to the first hurdle results in a slightly shorter stride length between hurdles which may lead to the hurdler elongating or reaching to get an effective 15 strides between the first two hurdles. A 22-stride approach can lead to an effective stride pattern between hurdles which requires the hurdler to shorten or chop his strides to get an effective 15 to the second hurdle. A 25-stride approach to the first hurdle will most often result in a 17-step pattern between hurdles. A transition takes place when the hurdler changes down to a shorter stride length ...

(1/2687) Visual control of locomotion in Parkinson's disease.

The effect of placing parallel lines on the walking surface on parkinsonian gait was evaluated. To identify the kind of visual cues (static or dynamic) required for the control of locomotion, we tested two visual conditions: normal lighting and stroboscopic illumination (three flashes/s), the latter acting to suppress dynamic visual cues completely. Sixteen subjects with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (nine males, seven females; mean age 68.8 years) and the same number of age-matched controls (seven males; nine females, mean age 67.5 years) were studied. During the baseline phase, Parkinson's disease patients walked with a short-stepped, slow velocity pattern. The double limb support duration was increased and the step cadence was reduced relative to normal. Under normal lighting, visual cues from the lines on the walking surface induced a significant improvement in gait velocity and stride length in Parkinson's disease patients. With stroboscopic illumination and without lines, both groups reduced their stride length and velocity but the changes were significant only in the Parkinson's disease group, indicating greater dependence on dynamic visual information. When stroboscopic light was used with stripes on the floor, the improvement in gait due to the stripes was suppressed in parkinsonian patients. These results demonstrate that the perceived motion of stripes, induced by the patient's walking, is essential to improve the gait parameters and thus favour the hypothesis of a specific visual-motor pathway which is particularly responsive to rapidly moving targets. Previous studies have proposed a cerebellar circuit, allowing the visual stimuli to by-pass the damaged basal ganglia.  (+info)

(2/2687) Development of a 12-min treadmill walk test at a self-selected pace for the evaluation of cardiorespiratory fitness in adult men.

The direct measurement of true maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and oxygen uptake corresponding to anaerobic threshold (VO2AT) is not always practical, especially in middle age and older populations. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to develop a simple test that could accurately estimate cardiorespiratory fitness using a submaximal treadmill walking protocol for middle age, older, sedentary individuals and patients with chronic disease. Subjects for this study were 42 men (44.9 +/- 15.7 years), which included 17 patients with coronary heart disease (57.0 +/- 9.6 years). VO2peak and VO2AT were measured using a treadmill protocol (VO2peak; 38.4 +/- 11.6 ml/kg/min, VO2AT; 22.9 +/- 7.4 ml/kg/min). This simple test assessed the total distance covered in 12 minutes on the treadmill at an intensity corresponding to either 1) 11 on the Borg scale of ratings of perceived exertion (RPE11), 2) 13 on the Borg scale of ratings of perceived exertion (RPE13), or 3) "Optimal" by subjective judgment. The correlation coefficients between VO2peak or VO2AT and total distance at the three intensities (RPE11; 950 +/- 100 m, RPE13; 1080 +/- 140 m Optimal; 1050 +/- 110 m) were statistically significant, ranging from 0.72 to 0.85. The test-retest reliability coefficient on 12 subjects was 0.98. The oxygen uptake (VO2) was measured during the three walk tests on 15 subjects. There were no significant changes in submaximal VO2 values from min 4 to min 12 (RPE11; 19.8 +/- 4.7 ml/kg/min, RPE13; 24.1 +/- 4.9 ml/kg/min, Optimal; 23.1 +/- 4.8 ml/kg/min) in any of the three tests. Similarly, the three submaximal VO2 values did not differ from the VO2AT value (21.2 +/- 8.3 ml/kg/min) obtained in the initial maximal test. These results suggest that the 12-min submaximal treadmill walk test (STWT) is a valid method for the assessment of VO2peak and VO2AT. Therefore, the STWT could be a useful performance test for evaluating cardiorespiratory fitness in middle age, older, sedentary individuals and patients with chronic disease.  (+info)

(3/2687) Maturation of gait dynamics: stride-to-stride variability and its temporal organization in children.

In very young children, immature control of posture and gait results in unsteady locomotion. In children of approximately 3 yr of age, gait appears relatively mature; however, it is unknown whether the dynamics of walking change beyond this age. Because stride dynamics depend on neural control, we hypothesized that motor control would continue to develop beyond age 3. To test this hypothesis, we measured the gait cycle duration on a stride-by-stride basis in 50 healthy 3- to 14-yr-old children (25 girls). Measurements of stride-to-stride variability were significantly larger both in the 3- and 4-yr-old children, compared with the 6- and 7-yr-old children, and in the 6- and 7-yr-old children, compared with the 11- to 14-yr-old children. Measurements of the temporal organization of gait also revealed significant age-dependent changes. The effects of age persisted even after adjusting for height. These findings indicate that mature stride dynamics may not be completely developed even in healthy 7-yr-old children and that different aspects of stride dynamics mature at different ages.  (+info)

(4/2687) A clinical guide to assess the role of lower limb extensor overactivity in hemiplegic gait disorders.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the role of knee and ankle extensor overactivity in the hemiplegic gait observed in stroke victims and to propose a clinical guide for selecting patients before treatment of a supposed disabling spasticity. METHODS: A standardized physical examination procedure was performed in 135 consecutive stroke patients. All patients were able to walk without human assistance. The period after stroke ranged from 3 to 24 months (mean, 11.5+/-7.25 months). Spasticity was evaluated with the stroke victim in sitting position and during walking. Overactivity of the quadriceps was considered disabling when inducing inability to flex the knee during the swing phase despite adequate control of knee flexion in sitting and standing positions; overactivity of the triceps surae was considered to be disabling when heel strike was not possible despite good control of the ankle flexion in sitting position; triceps retraction was also considered. RESULTS: Disabling overactivity was observed in 56 (41.5%) patients: 11 times for the quadriceps femoris, 21 times for the triceps surae, and 21 times for both muscles. It was considered to be the main disorder impairing gait among only 16 (12%) patients: 9 for the quadriceps alone, 3 for the triceps alone, and 4 for both. Sitting spasticity of the lower limb was not predictive of disabling overactivity during walking. CONCLUSIONS: Extensor muscle overactivity is one of the components of gait disorders in stroke patients. The difficulty in assessing spasticity and its real causal effect in gait disturbances are discussed. A clinical guide is proposed.  (+info)

(5/2687) Standard osteopathic manipulative treatment acutely improves gait performance in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Patients with Parkinson's disease exhibit a variety of motor deficits which can ultimately result in complete disability. The primary objective of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the effect of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) on the gait of patients with Parkinson's disease. Ten patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease and a group of eight age-matched normal control subjects were subjected to an analysis of gait before and after a single session of an OMT protocol. A separate group of 10 patients with Parkinson's disease was given a sham-control procedure and tested in the same manner. In the treated group of patients with Parkinson's disease, statistically significant increases were observed in stride length, cadence, and the maximum velocities of upper and lower extremities after treatment. There were no significant differences observed in the control groups. The data demonstrate that a single session of an OMT protocol has an immediate impact on Parkinsonian gait. Osteopathic manipulation may be an effective physical treatment method in the management of movement deficits in patients with Parkinson's disease.  (+info)

(6/2687) Relationship of lesion location to clinical outcome following microelectrode-guided pallidotomy for Parkinson's disease.

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between lesion location and clinical outcome following globus pallidus internus (GPi) pallidotomy for advanced Parkinson's disease. Thirty-three patients were prospectively studied with extensive neurological examinations before and at 6 and 12 months following microelectrode-guided pallidotomy. Lesion location was characterized using volumetric MRI. The position of lesions within the posteroventral region of the GPi was measured, from anteromedial to posterolateral along an axis parallel to the internal capsule. To relate lesion position to clinical outcome, hierarchical multiple regression analysis was used. The variance in outcome measures that was related to preoperative scores and lesion volume was first calculated, and then the remaining variance attributable to lesion location was determined. Lesion location along the anteromedial-to-posterolateral axis within the GPi influenced the variance in total score on the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale in the postoperative 'off' period, and in 'on' period dyskinesia scores. Within the posteroventral GPi, anteromedial lesions were associated with greater improvement in 'off' period contralateral rigidity and 'on' period dyskinesia, whereas more centrally located lesions correlated with better postoperative scores of contralateral akinesia and postural instability/gait disturbance. Improvement in contralateral tremor was weakly related to lesion location, being greater with posterolateral lesions. We conclude that improvement in specific motor signs in Parkinson's disease following pallidotomy is related to lesion position within the posteroventral GPi. These findings are consistent with the known segregated but parallel organization of specific motor circuits in the basal ganglia, and may explain the variability in clinical outcome after pallidotomy and therefore have important therapeutic implications.  (+info)

(7/2687) Reassessment of unilateral pallidotomy in Parkinson's disease. A 2-year follow-up study.

Unilateral pallidotomy has gained popularity in treating the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease. We present the results of a 2-year post-pallidotomy follow-up study. Using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS), the Goetz dyskinesia scale and the Purdue Pegboard Test (PPBT), we evaluated 20 patients at regular intervals both off and on medications for 2 years post-pallidotomy. There were no significant changes in the dosages of antiparkinsonian medications from 3 months pre-pallidotomy to 2 years post-pallidotomy. On the side contralateral to the operation, the improvements were preserved in 'on'-state dyskinesia (83% reduction from pre-pallidotomy to 2 years post-pallidotomy, P < 0.001) and 'off'-state tremor (90% reduction from pre-pallidotomy to 2 years post-pallidotomy, P = 0.005). There were no statistically significant differences between pre-pallidotomy scores and those at 2 years post-pallidotomy in ipsilateral dyskinesia, axial dyskinesia, 'off'- or 'on'-state PPBT, 'off'-state Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and 'off'-state gait and postural stability. After 2 years, the 'on'-state ADL scores worsened by 75%, compared with pre-pallidotomy (P = 0.005). We conclude that 2 years after pallidotomy, the improvements in dyskinesia and tremor on the side contralateral to pallidotomy are preserved, while the initial improvements in most other deficits disappear, either because of progression of pathology or loss of the early efficacy achieved by surgery.  (+info)

(8/2687) Impaired modulation of quadriceps tendon jerk reflex during spastic gait: differences between spinal and cerebral lesions.

In healthy subjects, functionally appropriate modulation of short latency leg muscle reflexes occurs during gait. This modulation has been ascribed, in part, to changes in presynaptic inhibition of Ia afferents. The changes in modulation of quadriceps tendon jerk reflexes during gait of healthy subjects were compared with those of hemi- or paraparetic spastic patients. The spasticity was due to unilateral cerebral infarction or traumatic spinal cord injury, respectively. The modulation of the quadriceps femoris tendon jerk reflex at 16 phases of the step cycle was studied. The reflex responses obtained during treadmill walking were compared with control values obtained during gait-mimicking standing postures with corresponding levels of voluntary muscle contraction and knee angles. In healthy subjects the size of the reflexes was profoundly modulated and was generally depressed throughout the step cycle. In patients with spinal lesion the reflex depression during gait was almost removed and was associated with weak or no modulation during the step cycle. In patients with cerebral lesion there was less depression of the reflex size associated with a reduced reflex modulation on the affected side compared with healthy subjects. On the 'unaffected' side of these patients reflex modulation was similar to that of healthy subjects, but the reflex size during gait was not significantly different from standing control values. These observations suggest that the mechanisms responsible for the depression of reflex size and the modulation normally seen during gait in healthy subjects are impaired to different extents in spasticity of spinal or cerebral origin, possibly due to the unilateral preservation of fibre tracts in hemiparesis.  (+info)

I have a crouched gait due to cerebral palsy and I was wondering if braces would reduce knee flexion?


  • I used to wear them when I was younger and decided to stop. Its been about 5 years and my hamstrings are very tight. Will wearing them significantly change the way I walk?
  • They might, but I'd see a physical therapist and an orthopaedist and/or neurologist with lots of experience with CP. I'm sure you have been there and done that with stretching and range of motion exercises. Working on that again may stretch out the hamstrings and the gastroc's so you don't need braces. Or, you may need both, working together. Some neurologists have used botox with CP. This works with spasms of the muscles, but won't help much with shortened tendons. Finally, there are tendon-release surgeries, but I don't think that would be your first line of attack. Best wishes.

should i consider adding a gait specialist along with physical therapy or just get a gait specialist?


  • i have achilles tendonitis beacuse of the way that i walk and i feel like it's not getting any better. it's something about how i avert my heels in a resting position making my calf muscles over work and not using my hips? i've been going to physical thearpy for 2 months and i'm not 'waddling' too much anymore but i still have limited movement. should i consider a gait specialist?
  • That is what I would do. The human gait is an intricate process.

Where can i get my gait analyzed?


  • I am concerned about the way i am walking and i want to have it analyzed. The only thing is i have no idea who to see about this? Who specializes in these kind of problems? I'm already scheduled for a MRI scan, have been waiting for AGES. I want to see someone else about this independently.
  • Go and see a Podiatrist. They specialize in problems with the feet, as in if you roll your feet while walking and so they have the experience of 'gait' problems and can make corrective insoles if needed. A MRI will not show your if your gait is out of alignment. Best of Luck


Should I try to correct my gait, so that both my feet fall parallel to each other, vs a v shape?


  • I have always had my feet make a v-shape on the ground. Now that I have had some knee pain due to running, I feel better when I force my self to walk with my feet falling parallel to each other. The question is, should I try to force my feet to do that, and hope that over time, it becomes my natural gait?
  • sounds like your knok need. or if it's a upside down v you might be piegion toed i wouldn't worry about it if it feels better then do it
