  • Problems Walking

    Problems in walking can certainly limit our every day mobility and activities. Who amongst us doesn’t have family responsibilities and places that we have to attend to or frequent daily? If you find yourself having trouble with balance, gait or unsteadiness and have no obvious reason for it other than you may have suffered an injury, you may wonder what is happening to you.
    I’m not speaking about the occasional stumble or stiffness we all experience from time to time, but a noticeable and re-occurring difficulty in walking. We’ve all heard stories of older adults whose fall led to a hip replacement or worse, an early death, but what if you’re a healthy adult who is having issues? Before you experience an embarrassing fall or possible injury, you should consult with a general neurologist about your condition. Dr. Jason Reinhart, DO, is a general neurologist who has both compassion and practical experience in treating people who are experiencing problems in walking.
    Problems in walking can be temporary or long-term, depending on the cause. Potential causes of temporary gait or balance complications include injury, trauma, inflammation and pain. Other causes include limited range of motion and fatigue. Neuropathy affecting foot and leg numbness can make it difficult to know where your feet are moving or even the sensation of touching the floor. Longer-term difficulties often result from muscular neurological issues. These could include, but are not limited to nerve injury, Parkinson's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
    Dr. Jason Reinhart, DO a general neurologist with 15 years of experience, understands that in many cases neurologic conditions relate to problems in walking, balance, muscle control and muscle coordination. By carefully collecting the details about the patient's health history, family health, lifestyle and diagnostic testing, the results will lead to a diagnosis and treatment plan. Dr. Reinhart’s entire staff share his desire and compassion to help those who struggling with walking and you have the added confidence in knowing that Dr. Reinhart has a wide variety of treatments for all neurological issues.
    Call today and schedule your appointment with Dr. Jason Reinhart, DO. You will understand why so many of his patients have regained peace of mind and are stepping out with a symptom free and renewed confidence in life.
