9 THINGS THAT STIFLE YOUR STRIDE
For more information about physical therapy options for difficulty walking, call Blue Ridge Physical Therapy at (423) 262-0020! Common conditions that contribute to walking problems include the following: 1. Back pain 2. Joint pain and arthritis 3. Diseases of the muscles or bones 4. Poor fitness 5. Problems after orthopedic surgery or stroke 6. Low blood pressure and heart disease 7. Parkinson’s disease 8. Vision or balance problems 9. Fear of falling If you happen to suffer from any of these conditions our therapists here at Blue Ridge are able to treat and help improve walking, balance and strength. Problems with walking increase as we age and are a leading cause of falls and disability in older adults. At least 20% of adults over 65 have problems with walking. This increases to 50% in adults 85 years old and older. Most of these problems with walking are associated with other underlying issues. Problems with walking are not a direct consequence of getting older. Rather, they are the effects of other conditions that become more common and severe with age. Common risk factors for severe problems with walking include advanced age (older than 85) and multiple chronic disease conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, dementia, stroke, hip fracture, or cancer.
