PTs will often analyze your gait by watching you get up and walk across the room, but most of the time we are analyzing your gait as soon as you walk into the clinic. If you have been diagnosed with gait abnormalities, these stretches and exercises might help.

There are also tests that can be performed like the 6-minute walk test to see how far you can walk in that time. But there are also more high-tech ways of analyzing your gait like walking on a treadmill with sensors on your body while a camera records you.

The way we walk can predict many things. Some of these things include gross motor delays in children, fall risks in older adults, and even the risk of dementia.

It also might indicate other health issues like premature mortality, cardiovascular disease, or cancer, according to a July 2018 meta-analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association. The meta-analysis covered 44 studies with a combined 101,945 participants.
