Description

In this program participants will learn the mechanics of walking and how various conditions such as arthritis, other foot and joint issues, and neurological problems affecting balance can impact gait. Strategies to compensate for these conditions will be discussed.  A review of balance including body systems that contribute to our balance and changes in balance that occur with age and medical conditions will be provided. Such review can help improve confidence with walking.  Suggestions will be provided on setting appropriate walking goals for yourself and ways to track progress using a pedometer and other technology.  Exercises to enhance your mobility and balance will be reviewed. There will be guidance to select appropriate walking footwear. At the conclusion of the program, there will be a panel discussion where participants can ask the pros questions, followed by a walk around the Rutland Regional Loop if weather permits.

Presented by the Staff of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Rutland Regional Medical Center.
