Gait / Balance Training

Our physical therapists are highly trained in analyzing gait and balance disturbances. We use advanced manual techniques of (PNF) proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation to challenge the patient during the stance and swing phrase. These principles originated by Maggie Knot, P.T. and Dr. Kabat back in the 1940’s and have been generously taught to us, the PT community by The Institute of Physical Art in Steamboat Springs Co. since 1975. Our goal is for you to have the tools to analyze your own function, whether you are relatively sedentary, an elite athlete/dancer, weekend warrior or a gardener. Once you are taught and understand certain principles of gait and balance, then walking to the store or running a marathon becomes an intellectual, as well as a physical task.
