The aim of this article is to highlight the versatility of CoreAlign as it relates to gait in the aging population. Declines in strength, flexibility, and balance can lead to falls, injuries, and even hospitalizations. CoreAlign is uniquely suited to address these areas of dysfunction efficiently by allowing patients to train functional movement patterns. Early clinical experience shows this is a tool that is applicable to a wide range of physical abilities and diagnoses.
