Myopathic Gait

Myopathic gait (or waddling gait) is a form of gait abnormality.

The "waddling" is due to the weakness of the proximal muscles of the pelvic girdle.[1]

The patient uses circumduction to compensate for gluteal weakness.[2]

Conditions associated with a myopathic gait include pregnancy, congenital hip dysplasia, muscular dystrophies and spinal muscular atrophy.
