Broad term: Difficulty walking is a broad term that encompasses multiple medical conditions. One type of difficulty walking is called claudication. In claudication, a person can begin having severe pain or tightness or cramping that can make it difficult to walk. Claudication can have a vascular or neurological cause or both. Cardiac and pulmonary patients can have trouble walking due to breathing probs.

Is it normal that my baby isn't walking yet?

5 doctor answers10 doctors weighed in
Dr. Thomas McDonagh
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: The average age for walking is 9-15 months. If your child is not walking by age 18 months, that is different enough that your doctor will recommend having an evaluation to see if there is a cause for this delay and consider beginning physical therapy to help your child reach this milestone.

When will my baby learn to walk?

Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
12 to 15 months: Children want to check out their world starting around 6 months, and by 9 months are able to crawl around. By 12 months, that just doesn't cut it, and they pull up on objects and cruise. We expect babies to walk between 12 and 15 months, though of course some will walk by 9 or 10 months, and some won't by 15 mo. A lot depends on the drive and gross development of the child.

Usually Around Age 1: Most infants are either cruising (walking holding on to someone's hand or furniture) or walking by age 1. Though that is the norm, development varies for each child. Many children do not walk until 15 to 18 months, and some infants walk as early as 9 months. So try not to stress the timing of milestones and if you do have concerns, talk to your pediatrician.
