Gait and Stair Training
in Ellijay, GA

At your first appointment, your Physical Therapist will perform a thorough evaluation and develop a personalized rehabilitation treatment program with you that may include Gait and Stair Training.

What is Gait Training?

Gait training is a type of physical therapy that helps people improve their ability to stand and walk. One goal of gait training is preventing falls. Gait training may be recommended after an illness, surgery, or injury or even to help a patient regain independence in walking. Gait training works to strengthen the muscles and joints in the lower body and back. As a result, patients will improve balance, improve posture, develop muscle memory, build endurance, and prepare the legs for repetitive motion. Gait Training also includes stair training, and instruction in the safe use of assistive devices such as canes, crutches, and walkers.

Benefits of Gait Training:

Gait training improves ability to stand, walk and even run by including activities to strengthen muscles and joints, improve posture and balance, build endurance, retrain legs for repetitive motion, and develop muscle memory.

What Our Clients Say

Alan Ramfjord

I have been a patient and a wellness client of Bryant Physical Therapy since 2003. I have personally had both knees and left hip replaced. I have had neck surgery as well. My rehab with Bryant Physical Therapy has been excellent on all occasions. Larry, Mike, Brett and Sherri have been knowledgeable, caring and concerned about my recovery every step of the way. As a teacher and coach for 30+ years I have had the opportunity to interact with many physical therapists. I would recommend Bryant Physical Therapy over anyone else. Their knowledge is superior. They spend time with each patient and work to achieve the best outcome possible. They are very fortunate to have 3 outstanding techs working for them. Melinda, Sonya and Priscilla have a tremendous amount of experience and expertise between them. They are more than capable of managing the exercises and therapy that are prescribed. For the past 8 years I have been a wellness patient at Bryant Physical Therapy. I go 5 days a week. I have watched the therapists working with patients for literally hundreds of hours. They have been knowledgeable and caring with each patient. I have seen them having discussions with each patient. From personal experience they have changed exercises and therapy methods to help me achieve my goals. I have seen many patient’s come to Bryant’s Physical Therapy because of an unsatisfactory result from other therapists. I would recommend Bryant Physical Therapy no matter what your age or physical problem.
