Gait is defined as "bipedal, biphasic forward propulsion of center of gravity of human body, in which there is alternate movements of different segments of the body". Different gaits are characterized by differences in limb movement patterns, overall velocity, forces, kinetic and potential movement. ...Read more
In general...yes: If you have inefficient biomechanics, your gait can be improved by modalities like physical therapy and orthotics. Your gait is a complex series of coordinated muscle movement and can be influenced by age, structure, muscle control, etc. And affected by functioning body systems (i.e. Nervous system, circulation, musculoskeletal system, etc.).
