Why Walking Correctly Is So Important

George Harrison had to say: “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” So along that line, the last time we were I did videos, we were talking about walking and dealing with various foot issues. We’re going to continue that theme, because if you lose your ability to walk, you aren’t going to get anywhere.

If you’re not walking correctly, chances are you going to break something down somewhere. So proper walking, proper gait patterns, are very important. You’ve got to keep moving and if too much time is spent sitting, it will affect the way you move.

I’d like to go over a few more exercises that will help you with your walking. When you are walking, you’re essentially on a single leg for part of that time. You have to be able to control that single leg. A lot of people I see in the clinic can’t, and so because of that, they need to train that and get their stability and strength back.

So what I want to do in the next three exercise videos that we’re going to go over exercises that you can do to help with your gait pattern.

Check out our YouTube page where I will demonstrate three different exercises you can do at home to help with walking and your gait pattern.  If you have further questions, contact us at Fitness4LifePT.com.
