Foot and gait rehabilitation

Foot and gait rehabilitation, also following neurological injuries
The foot represents the fixed point on the ground on which the entire weight of the body stands, and enables a person to assume and maintain an upright posture, as well as to move through space thanks to an even distribution of loads and tensions. Also considered as a sensory organ in obtaining and maintaining balance, the foot provides the spinal column – to which it is closely interconnected – with the stability necessary to function fully.

Poor foot behaviour or incorrect ground support consequently also affects the knee and spine, altering posture to a greater or lesser degree. It is important to remember that posture is fundamental in guaranteeing a correct balance of the body and in the prevention of various conditions: consequences of bad posture can in fact include problems of various types, such as cervicalgia, neuralgia, headaches, chewing defects, dental malocclusions, back pain, jaw clicks, lumbosciatica and lumbar pain.

For this reason, pathologies of the foot must be treated very carefully to ensure an effective recovery of optimal posture.

The experience of the specialists at Papa Giovanni Physiotherapy is available for the treatment of foot pathologies such as hallux valgus, flat foot, club foot and hollow foot. We also design ad hoc rehabilitation paths aimed at recovering a correct base of support and functional movements of the trunk and upper limbs following a neurological injury, as well as recovery and independence in walking following neurological conditions that reduce autonomy.
