Ataxic gait - Definition



Definition


Ataxia is defined as difficulty carrying out a movement with impaired muscular strength. In the lower limbs, an ataxic gait is characterized by a lack of balance when walking, and imprecise and poorly coordinated leg movements. There are three main types of ataxic gait: when there is a problem in the cerebellum, which coordinates movement, it is called cerebellar ataxia; when the function which takes the information from ground at the foot is impaired, it is called proprioceptive ataxia of neurological origin; the problem may also come from the inner ear, involved in balance: this is vestibular ataxia or labyrinth.
