Good evening, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for contacting us this evening.

I am sorry that you have Gait Apraxia. The treatment for it depends on the cause, however as it is a neurological problem most of the time, neuro rehab in the form of physiotherapy would be appropriate.

This can be found privately. As it is a rehabilitation it can be done with any private physiotherapy provider.

If you advise me your closest town I can assist you finding a clinic locally.

I live in Royal Wootton Bassett near Swindon.

Thank you.

Please try the following link, but I would suggest discussing this with them first and clarifying the price.
