FOOT DROP

Foot drop can be a temporary condition in some cases or can become permanent if restorative action is not implemented early. Foot drop is an all-around term for trouble lifting the front part of the foot. If you have foot drop, you may drag the front of your foot on the ground when you take a step. Foot drop signifies an underlying neurological, muscular or anatomical problem. Because of this, patients with foot drop scuff their feet along the ground or bend their knees to lift their foot higher than usual to prevent the scuffing. Foot drop is a common and painful problem that can lead to falls and personal injury.

RANGE OF PATIENT SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

  • Reduced sensation, numbness, or tingling in the top of the foot or the outer area of the upper or lower leg
  • Foot that drops (not capable to keep the foot up).
  • Toes drag during walking.
  • All-around walking problems.
  • Weakness of the feet or ankles.
  • Reduction of muscle control in the lower legs and feet.
  • Deteriorating of the foot or foreleg muscles.
  • Challenge elevating up the foot and toes.

PRACTICAL REHABILITATION.

In the process of dealing with neuropathy, our group has treated a subset of patients, around six percent, with peroneal motor nerve condition (foot drop ) which have also responded to our treatment. Chronic foot drop is very hard to reverse. One of our patients was told by another center it would be 4 years, if at all, before he recovered. Our therapy has revealed different results. Functional improvements have been significant and oftentimes patients are walking far better. Occasionally patients have attained full recovery where function was entirely normal in as little as 6 weeks of treatment.
