Introduction
The aim of the study was to evaluate changes in selected basic and derivative kinematic parameters of gait in adult patients with low back pain subjected to Vojta therapy.

Methods
The study included 17 patients with low back pain subjected to Vojta therapy. Gait parameters were assessed with G-SENSOR, the wireless inertial measurement unit system for gait analysis. The device was placed on the body of the patient in the lumbar region at the level of L4–L5, and enabled to obtain accurate and objective information on kinematic gait parameters.

Results
Out of the 17 spatial and temporal parameters analysed, 3 changed significantly. The cadence decreased, and the duration of the right and left limb walk cycles increased.

Conclusions
Rehabilitation with Vojta therapy may improve spatial and temporal gait parameters in adults with low back pain.
