  • Spondylolisthesis

    Tightened hamstrings are very common There may be enhanced lordosis and a waddling gait with shortened step length. There may be gluteal muscular wasting.[] High degrees of spondylolisthesis may present with neurogenic claudication or even cauda equina impingement.[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Symptoms include: Myotonia (prolonged muscle spasm) in the fingers and facial muscles A floppy-footed, high-stepping gait (walk or run) Cataracts Heart abnormalities Endocrine[] Additional symptoms of myotonic MD include a floppy-footed and high-stepping gait, cataracts, cardiac abnormalities, and endocrine disturbances.[]

  • Fetal Distress in Labor

    […] forceps Common peroneal nerve injury Paresthesias /decreased sensation of the dorsum of the foot and the anterolateral calf Foot drop ( foot eversion and dorsiflexion ), high-stepping[] gait Prolonged squatting during childbirth Hyperflexion of the knees during childbirth Direct compression of the nerve with direct pressure over the fibular head Inadequate[]

  • Tabes Dorsalis

    “Tabes dorsalgia” is a related back pain. “ Tabetic gait ” is a characteristic high-stepping gait of untreated syphilis where the patient’s feet slap the ground as they strike[] "Tabetic gait" is a characteristic high- stepping gait - Tabetic Ataxia Deafness 6.[]

  • Charcot Marie Tooth Disease

    Whereas CMT often presents initially in adolescent or adult patients with cavovarus feet, thin calves, or a high-stepping gait, pediatric presentation is not so consistent[] Charcot-marie-tooth disease symptoms Symptoms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease often appear in adolescence or early adulthood and include: Foot dropping Hammertoes High-stepping[] Signs and Symptoms of CMT A typical sign of CMT is weakness of the foot and lower leg muscles, which causes a high-stepping gait resulting in frequent tripping or falls.[]

  • Ankle Arthritis

    These patients also took fewer total steps per day, took fewer high-intensity steps, and chose to walk at a slower walking speed.[] High-intensity step count was also correlated with both survey scores, walking speed, step length, peak ankle plantar flexor moment, and peak ankle power generated.[] Gait analysis revealed reduced ankle motion, peak ankle plantar flexor moment, peak ankle power absorbed, and peak ankle power generated for the affected limb compared with[]

  • Eating Disorder

    Tabes would cause lancinating pains to the abdomen and high-stepping gait called "walking on cotton."[]

  • Peroneal Nerve Compression Neuropathy

    Patients with severe weakness compensate by flexing the hip in an exaggerated fashion and then kicking the affected leg forward in the typical high-stepping gait.[] She had a high stepping gait with reduced sensation along the distal two-third of her lateral lower leg and over the dorsum of her right foot, including the first webspace[]

  • Peroneal Nerve Paralysis

    […] peroneal nerve : back of the feet and toes, lateral surface of the lower leg Motor deficit Deep peroneal nerve : paralysis of foot and toe extensors (dorsiflexors) foot drop high-stepping[] People with muscle weakness or paralysis due to peroneal nerve injury or disease may attempt to compensate with one of the following gaits : High-stepping – a person bends[] gait Superficial peroneal nerve : paralysis of peroneus longus and peroneus brevis impaired pronation of the foot Sural nerve lesion L 4 –S 3 Achilles tendon rupture Entrapment[]
