Gait and Balance at RWJ University Hospital

How your gait & balance impacts your function and safety

  • Impaired gait and balance are the leading cause of falls in any post-operative population as well as the general population. Understanding key aspects of gait and balance will help to improve safety among those that may be susceptible to falls.
  • Early identification of gait and balance disorders and appropriate intervention may prevent dysfunction and loss of independence. Effective options for patients with gait and balance disorders include exercise and physical therapy.
