What strategies can a physical therapist use to improve gait speed and endurance?
Physical therapists can help improve your range of movement and gait speed, as well as give you strategies to improve your endurance and strength. Mobility and stability are important for increasing your performance.
Transcript: "Hello, so if your physical therapist helps with your range of movement, that can improve your gait speed because you're able to move more freely. But then, theoretically, if there's less resistance to your movement, there might be more endurance. So, a physical therapist can also give you strategies in which you can improve your endurance and make yourself stronger, better, faster, all these things. But mobility is key, stability is key, so the more stable you are, the less work there will be and the longer you'll last. So, all of these things are within the tools of the physical therapist."
