A 65-year-old with a shuffling gait may have what condition?
Select Your Answer:
In a shuffling gait, the individual takes short steps but does not make any progress.
The shuffling gait does not lead to forward movement and is a typical feature of Parkinson disease.
Individuals may also walk at a variable pace.
Patients with a cerebellar tumor can have a wide-based gait. With sciatica, the gait is labeled as antalgic. In multiple sclerosis, gait patterns will be variable based on each patient. They often have weakness which is not symmetrical and does not create a shuffling gait.
