I think we’ve all noticed this type of “walking“ in individuals, you know when(typically an older man) seems to walk by short choppy, shuffling steps. I empathize with anyone who does this, wonder why they do it and what may have precipitated this activity. I’ve had friends and acquaintances who started doing it but never asked abt it for concern of “embarrassing” them. A couple of them even died within a fairly short time after I first noticed it. Now that I’m older myself, I’ve thought about what “signs or symptoms” to look for, what meds might be available, etc, to counter act this from happening, or treat it?! Recently I’ve taken the opportunity during routine doctor visits to inquire abt this. Two doctors have acted like this is something they aren’t “familiar” with from my inquiry abt this(what I call “old man’s shuffle/walk“). Both looked “baffled“ when I asked what causes it, and if there’s even anything(prescription drugs) available for prevention/treatment! Is this something others may have noticed, or have a reason/definition for? Could it be my imagination??
