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

Eric Hedden

I have almost completed my second set of treatments for total knee replacement (left knee in 2019 and this is right knee). I cannot imagine a more professional, effective program!

Bonnie Preiss

I have worked with Larry and Mike and his staff for over a year. I started out by receiving therapy with Mike and his associate Priscilla. My wish was and is that to delay knee surgery. Mike and Priscilla have made my wish come true. They put my knee in place and I have been able to function most normally without further therapy or cortisone shots
I was so at ease and happy with the staff including the ladies in the office that I continued using the facility with their wellness program
I actually look forward to my visits that run around three times a week. If I have any problems that may occur with my leg, Mike is very open to a new exercise— and it works! There is always a greeting when I arrive. Everyone including the clients has formed a congenial group. We laugh and joke with each other
But the staff also takes their jobs seriously. They listen to us , they show real empathy to our problems. AND they make us better
Thanks for being there. I look forward to working with you for a long time
