VIDEOS IN CLINICAL MEDICINE
Functional Gait Disorder, Before and After TreatmentJoseph H. Friedman, MD

VIDEO 1. The walking is initially wide-based, but there was no imbalance when he walked sideways. The ability to overcome his gait dysfunction with an unusual maneuver which should have worsened the imbalance, the lack of difference between walking with and without the crutches, and the last few steps into the office where the gait was normal, all point to a non-physiological problem.
