In brief: Complex Issue

Gait is a very complex neurological function that relies on many systems functioning together. I would recommend that you see a specialist in dbs programming to help you maximize function.

In brief: Maximize CDS!!

First, make sure your dbs programming is being done well by an experienced programmer. Get a second opinion if needed! then, make sure your regimen includes meds to maximize cds (continuous Dopamine stimulation), and thus maximally improve freezing.
I call them grade "a" meds: a for Azilect & agonists (neupro (rotigotine) patch, Requip xl & Mirapex er). They last longer than sinemet or Comtan = less freezing!
