WHAT IS FOOT DROP

Foot drop can be a temporary condition in some cases or may become permanent if therapeutic action is not employed early. Foot drop is an all-around term for trouble raising the front part of the foot. If you have foot drop, you may drag the front of your foot on the floor when you walk. Foot drop is a sign of an underlying neurological, muscular or anatomical problem. Because of this, people with foot drop scuff their toes along the floor or bend their knees to lift their foot higher than usual to avoid the scuffing. Foot drop is a prevalent and distressing problem that can bring about falls and injury.

VARIETY OF PATIENT SIGNS

  • Decreased sensation, numbness, or tingling in the top of the foot or the outer part of the upper or lower leg
  • Foot that drops (unable to hold the foot up).
  • Toes drag during walking.
  • All-around walking problems.
  • Weakness of the feet.
  • Loss of muscle control in the lower legs and feet.
  • Deteriorating of the foot or foreleg muscles.
  • Trouble raising up the foot and toes.

PRACTICAL RECOVERY

While treating neuropathy, our team has treated a subset of patients, roughly 6%, with peroneal motor nerve condition which have also reacted to our treatment method. Long term foot drop is very hard to reverse. One of our patients was told by another center that it would be four years, if at all, before he recovered. Our treatment has revealed different results. Practical improvements have been significant and in many cases patients are walking far better. Occasionally patients have obtained full recovery where function was completely normal in as little as 6 weeks of therapy.
