Parkinson’s disease: Key symptoms found in your feet and the way you walk – what to spot

These issues can mean that your pattern of walking changes and some people find that their stride gets shorter, said Parkinson’s UK.

The health charity added: “You may also experience freezing, where your feet feel glued to the ground and it is difficult to take a step.

“Some people with Parkinson’s experience ankle or foot stiffness. It can affect your ankle joint and how easy it is to bend your foot up and down.

“If you experience stiffness in your feet and legs, it can make a heel-to-toe pattern of walking more difficult.”

The site advised: “Rather than striking the ground with your heel and then pushing off with your toes, you may shuffle, or walk in a more flat-footed way.”
