1. Keep your head up and avoid looking down. There are studies that show that looking down at the road actually increases the risk of falls!
  2. Keep your back as straight as possible. Walk tall and walk proudly by sticking your chest out and don’t forget to swing your arms as well.
  3. Do not drag your legs while taking a step, lift up your thigh with every step you take.
  4. Maintain heel strike followed by push-off at the toes.
  5. Keep your feet wide apart as to increase stability/ base of support.
  6. Keep your feet facing forward, not pointed outwards or inwards as this can cause back or hip problems.
  7. Please note the discrepancies in stride length, difficulty in initiating any movement, and ability to put weight evenly on both feet. These aspects of walking would be useful information for your physiotherapist!
