Following a brief medical history, your physiotherapist will ask you to walk barefoot, in shoes and even run or jog. They may also ask you to stand on one foot or do activities that test your balance.
Treatment will very much depend on what the therapist identifies as the source of the issue, and of course, the severity of the problem. To effectively and safely walk, you need good strength and good balance, and your physiotherapist will work with you to improve both these factor.
Treatment could be as simple as exercises or changing your footwear. Another solution might be orthotics, which can be fitted at our Trico centre location.
In some cases, you may require physical therapy and rehabilitation to relearn how to move the muscles, how to position your head and regain balance.At the end of the day, the goal is to have you walking and doing activities comfortably and effectively. Your quality of life depends on it.
