If the ankle dorsiflexors are weak, your walking may have a steppage quality (the leg is lifted higher when swung forward so that the toes clear the ground) or you may just drag the toes or inside of the foot on the ground as the leg moves forward. If both legs are affected, this pattern will alternate back and forth as you walk often creating a seesaw appearance remotely similar to the way Charlie Chaplin would walk in his old silent movies. We call weakness of this type in both legs a spastic paraparesis; weakness of this type in only one leg is called spastic monoparesis.
Walking with a limp, swinging one leg in a circle or hiking up a hip to prevent tripping are all examples of a compensatory gait.People with compensatory gait sometimes complain of back, hip or knee pain.
Their discomfort may likely be due to the change in their walking pattern, and thus is a secondary symptom or complication of weakness in their legs.
Muscles become deconditioned and weaken further.Weakness and compensatory gait patterns must be identified early so that appropriate steps can be taken to prevent the secondary symptoms or complications of pain and disuse weakness. An early referral for physical therapy is the best way to improve walking and avoid these problems.
