Ataxia Gait Disturbances and Multi-Tasking

No doubt many factors contribute to ataxia gait disturbances, but one plays a central role. Such disturbances (which is a fancy way of saying a person is having difficulty walking) are more prevalent and problematic when a person is multi-tasking. When walking alone and totally focused on the task of walking, ataxia gait difficulties are minor. In contrast, when walking and talking with a friend at the very same time, ataxia gait disturbances can become problematic.

OK. So that is the problem. What can you do about it? An eloquent solution is to practice multi-tasking with totally fun and engaging exercises that coordinate the intricate interactions between the mind and body. For a suggestion of just such an exercise, watch my short video below.

Abnormality of Gait

In a recent Parkinsons Recovery Radio show, Bill Hubert made an interesting observation. People with mobility problems often walk with one long step followed up by a short step. That is to say, the right step is consistently longer than the left (or vice versa). This is described by some observers as a shuffle. Shuffles can eventually lead to falls.

So much for describing what is a common problem with an abnormality of gait for a surprising number of people. What in the world can be done about this problem?

In this video, Bill Hubert from Bal-A-Vis-X describes a simple therapy that corrects the problem.
