Alzheimer’s, Dementia May Trigger Changes In Walking Speed, Stride | Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach Home Health Care, In-Home Nursing Care

Subtle changes in the way a person walks can be an early warning sign of cognitive decline and a signal for advanced testing, researchers reported Sunday at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver, Canada.
The findings are the first to link a physical symptom to the disease, which up until now required doctors to begin a diagnosis by focusing on cognition and administering lengthy neurological exams. The evidence in the five studies is “robust,” experts say. They note walking changes can occur even before cognition decline surfaces.
