35 Possible Causes for Slow Broad-Based Gait

  • Hydrocephalus

    The typical gait abnormality in NPH is a broad-based, slow, short-stepped, "stuck to the floor", or "magnetic" movement.[] The gait abnormalities in NPH may bear resemblance to a gait associated with Parkinson's disease. The gait deviation can be classified as mild, marked, or severe.[]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    The typical gait abnormality in NPH is a broad-based, slow, short-stepped, "stuck to the floor", or "magnetic" movement.[] Gait is bradykinetic, shuffling and broad based. Urinary symptoms are often presented as frank incontinence.[] As the disease progresses, the patient’s gait deteriorates markedly, becoming broad-based, slow, short-stepped, and glue-footed (a gait disturbance of the abasia-astasia type[]

  • Post Traumatic Headache

    Her gait was slow and slightly broad-based.[]

  • Congenital Non-Goitrous Hypothyroidism Type 6

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    Many movements become slow and clumsy, with more pronounced gait difficulties [7] . With walking, each step becomes slow and deliberate with broad-based steps [1] .[] Patients may develop gait instability with ataxic quality (broad-based steps).[] Slowness (bradykinesia) and stiffness (rigidity) are Parkinsonian symptoms that occur in all Parkinson’s disease mimicker disorders.[]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1H

  • Hyperalaninemia

  • Ataxia

    The unsteadiness further progresses to a broad-based, lurching gait; sudden turns are extremely difficult without falling.[] Early stance and gait problems include the inability to do a tandem stance or stand with feet together; stance becomes broad-based and displays increased sway of the body.[] Speech is slow, slurred, and monotonous. Skeletal deformities and muscle weakness are common. Although the course of the disease is slow, it is progressive.[]

  • Alcoholic Cerebellar Degeneration

    Stance – a broad-based gait is noted in cerebellar disease 2.[] Observe the patient’s normal gait: 1.[] Stability – can be staggering, often slow and unsteady – similar to a drunk person walking In unilateral cerebellar disease, the patient can veer towards the side of the lesion[]
