Following an acquired brain injury some patients display a lack of confidence in attempting to re-establish walking. This may limit the level of walking ability that they eventually achieve. It may also limit their application of that ability so that they may be relcutant to walk unaided, to walk in more demanding situation (e.g. outdoors) or even to walk at all. In many cases, the lack of confidence is based on a fear of falling. This report gives an account of such a patient and describes a method of tackling the fear.
