orthotic gait

NPTE, orthotic gait problems, physical therapy IER

QuestionAnswer
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Foot Slap;Forefoot Slaps the Ground (orthotic cause) -inadequate DF assist -inadequate PF stop
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Foot Slap;Forefoot Slaps the Ground (anatomic cause) -flaccid or weak DF
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Toes first; tiptoe posture may be held through stance (orthotic cause) -inadequate heel lift -inadequate DF assist -inadequate PF stop -inadequate relief of heel pain
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Toes first; tiptoe posture may be held through stance (anatomic cause) -short leg -pes equinus (toes extremely flexed) -extensor spasticity -heel pain
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Foot Flat contact; entire foot contacts ground at heel strike (orthotic cause) -inadequate traction from sole -requires walking aid (ex: cane) -inadequate DF stop
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Foot Flat contact; entire foot contacts ground at heel strike (anatomic cause) -poor balance -pes calcaneus (heel)
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Excessive medial (lateral) foot contact; medial (lateral) border contacts the floor (orthotic cause) -transverse plane malalignment
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Excessive medial (lateral) foot contact; medial (lateral) border contacts the floor (anatomic cause) -weak inverters (evertors) -pes valgus (varus) -genu valgum (varum)
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Excessive knee flexion; knee flexes or buckles as foot hits the ground (orthotic causes) -inadequate knee lock -inadequate DF stop -PF stop -inadequate contralateral shoe lift
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Excessive knee flexion; knee flexes or buckles as foot hits the ground (anatomic causes) -knee pain -short contralateral leg -knee or hip flexion contracture -weak quads: flexor synergy
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Hyperextended knee; knee hyperextends as weight is transferred to leg (orthotic cause) -genu recurvatum inadequately controlled by PF stop -excessive concave calf band -pes equinus (flexed toes) uncompensated by contralateral shoe lift -inadequate knee lock
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Hyperextended knee; knee hyperextends as weight is transferred to leg (anatomic cause) -weak quads -lax knee ligaments -extensor synergy -pes equinus -short contralateral leg -contralateral knee or hip flexion contracture
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Forward trunk lean; patient leans forward as legs accepts weight (orthotic cause) -inadequate knee locks
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Forward trunk lean; patient leans forward as legs accepts weight (anatomic cause) -compensation for quad weakness -hip and knee flexion contractures
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Backward trunk lean; patient leans backward as leg accepts weight (orthotic cause) -inadequate hip lock -inadequate knee lock
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Backward trunk lean; patient leans backward as leg accepts weight (anatomic cause) -weakness of the gluteus maximus on the stance leg -knee ankylosis (fusion of knee bones)
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Lateral trunk lean; patient leans toward stance leg with weight (orthotic cause) -excessive height of medial upright of KAFO -excessive ABDuction of hip joint of HKAFO -insufficient shoe lift -requires walking aid
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Lateral trunk lean; patient leans toward stance leg with weight (anatomic cause) -weak gluteus medius -ABDuction contracture -dislocated hip -hip pain -poor balance -short leg
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Wide walking base; heel centers more than 10cm (4") apart (orthotic cause) -excessive height of medial upright of KAFO -excessive ABDuction of hip joint of HKAFO -insufficient shoe lift -cane, knee lock
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Wide walking base; heel centers more than 10cm (4") apart (anatomic cause) -ABDuction contracture -poor balance -short contralateral leg -requires waking aid
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Internal (external) rotation of limb (orthotic cause) -uprights incorrectly aligned in transverse plane -requires orthotic control (rotation control straps, pelvic band)
Initial Contact (Early Stance): Internal (external) rotation of limb (anatomic cause) -internal (external) hip rotators spastic -external (internal) hip rotators weak -antetorsion (forward hip) -retroversion (backward hip) -weak quads: external rotation
Late Stance: Inadequate transition; delayed or absent transfer of weight over the forefoot (orthotic cause) -PF stop -inadequate DF stop
Late Stance: Inadequate transition; delayed or absent transfer of weight over the forefoot (anatomic cause) -weak PF -Achilles tendon sprain or rupture -pes calcaneus -forefoot pain
Swing: Toe drag; toes maintain contact with ground (orthotic causes) -inadequate DF assist -inadequate PF stop
Swing: Toe drag; toes maintain contact with ground (anatomic causes) -weak DF -PF Spasticity -weak hip flexors
Swing: Circumduction: leg swings outward in a semicircular arc (orthotic cause) -knee lock -inadequate DF assist -inadequate PF stop
Swing: Circumduction: leg swings outward in a semicircular arc (anatomic cause) -Extensor -Extensor synergy -knee or ankle ankylosis -weak DF -pes equinus
Swing: Hip Hiking: leg elevated at pelvis to enable the limb to swing forward (orthotic cause) -knee lock -inadequate DF assist -inadequate PF stop
Swing: Hip Hiking: leg elevated at pelvis to enable the limb to swing forward (anatomic cause) -short contralateral leg -contralateral knee or hip flexion contracture -weak hip flexors -extensor synergy -knee or ankle ankylosis -weak DF
Swing: Vaulting: exaggerated PF of the contralateral leg to enable the limb to swing forward (orthotic cause) -knee lock -inadequate DF assist -inadequate PF stop
Swing: Vaulting: exaggerated PF of the contralateral leg to enable the limb to swing forward (anatomic cause) -weak hip flexors -extensor spasticity -pes equinus -short contralateral leg -contralateral knee or hip flexion contracture -knee or ankle ankylosis -weak DF

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
