Pathological gait can be defined as a disturbance, which occurs when the body moves forward through repetitive natural motions. The pathological factors, which affect the gait cycle are pain, deformity, decreased sensorial or motor control and balance. Pathological gait pattern on the ankle joint cause excessive plantar flexion or dorsiflexion, and on the knee joint affect the sagittal plane and cause excessive flexion or extension. Gait abnormalities on the hip joint cause flexion, extension, adduction, abduction, and rotational deformities. Diagnosis of these abnormalities is the first step to proper treatment.
