Abnormal Gait


CONDITIONS

Abnormal Gait

Potential causes for a child beginning to walk awkwardly range from a common variation that can be expected to resolve itself as the child grows to more concerning, progressive issues that can cause serious pain and mobility problems going forward. Some of the many types of gait disorder include spastic gait (where one foot is dragged upside down) to antalgic gait (where the child only puts weight on one side), habitual toe-walking, “peg leg” gait (where there is excess hip abduction with one leg), stepping gait (where the entire leg is raised from the hip so the foot can move forward) and more. These conditions may result from a foot injury or disorder, a neurological issue such as cerebral palsy or a brain injury, or from a birth defect, gross childhood obesity, inflammatory arthritis, a leg-length discrepancy, congenital hip dysplasia, a spine problem, stroke or multiple other issues. Your physician can employ various tests to determine the cause of a gait disorder and recommend a plan of care that may include leg braces, orthotic devices, physical therapy and surgical interventions.
