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.
