Abstract

As a child matures so does the child's gait pattern. Gait changes in pediatric patients will be expected and sequential as developmental milestones. Gait changes may also represent normal variations along an appropriate spectrum. There are times when changes in gait are due to urgent orthopedic or medical conditions, and those should not be overlooked. A good understanding of pediatric gait development and a basic understanding of gait assessment are critical for the primary care physician who cares for children.
