Overcome The Way Of Walking Like A Penguin?
Greetings .. r nI am 24 years old. I have a path like a penguin, his way is not normal like most people. Can I have a normal path like people. Or some kind of therapy tip for my feet to walk normally? Thank you, please respond 🙏
Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Previously, had such road conditions been going on for a long time? Are there any other symptoms, such as pain in the lower legs or elsewhere? Does this cause limitations in carrying out daily activities?
The road conditions as you mentioned can be caused by various factors. First, it may be an impact of walking habits, especially if there are no other accompanying complaints, such as pain, and no previous injury history. If it is because of this, actually if there is no significant distraction that you are experiencing because of the way you walk, there is nothing you need to do because it is not dangerous. And in general, everyone has a different way of walking. However, if the way you have that makes you less confident, you can train yourself to walk in a way that you think is comfortable and that makes you confident. You can practice in a mirror to find out easily if the new gait you practiced is what you expected.
In addition, this way of walking can be associated with a disease, for example due to disorders of the muscles, joints (eg ligaments), bones, nerves, etc. which usually occur due to previous injuries. Weak muscles due to lack of exercise, and then too much weight, can also contribute to this gait.
Other conditions, including pain in the groin and genital areas, can also cause the walk to become more strained (like a penguin) in response to pain relief. This is for example in genital area infections, genital area and groin injuries, postpartum (in women), post circumcision / circumcision (in men), etc.
If the possible reason for this way of walking is just a habit, then as said before, you don't need to get checked out. However, if you have not been able to identify the cause, or there are other symptoms and a history of injury or illness as mentioned above, you can consult a general practitioner first for a physical examination. If necessary, the doctor will refer to an orthopedist for further tracking, or to carry out supporting examinations such as x-rays, MRI, Ct scans, etc. for tracking.
Some of the things you can do. To support good posture and a comfortable gait are:
Get used to the upright position when standing, walking, and sitting. This is besides being good for your spine, it can also reduce the risk of back pain
Regular, balanced exercise should consist of aerobic, anaerobic, and stretching exercises such as yoga
If there is a limb injury, it is better to have it checked immediately to confirm the condition, before long-term complications occur that interfere with the function of the limb
Maintain ideal body weight
That's all the explanation from me. May be useful
