Abstract: 
Gait and balance deficits are commonly experienced by individuals with a variety of neurologic disorders. These deficits can be particularly frustrating because they often profoundly impact a person's quality of life. The author applies information about gait and balance based on the neurologic examination and summarizes important relationships among common impairment measures of gait and balance deficits. She also provides an interpretation of these relationships to assist the clinician in how to identify and manage gait and balance deficits.
