Drop Foot Treatment Process

TREATMENT PROCESS

This is my current treatment process for patients with drop foot. 

  • 1st Visit - Evaluate your condition, review x-rays, and perform a walking evaluation to determine the cause of your drop foot. Review different drop foot braces and use of physical therapy for strengthening. 
  • Orthotics - Orthotics are useful to stabilize the heel position, help with posture and reduce excess movement of the foot that can increase stress on the foot. 
  • Physical Therapy - Can be used to strengthen the foot and help with balance
  • Brace - Drop foot brace can be used to help with walking and balance. This is covered by insurance normally and fits in your shoes.

COMMON QUESTIONS

  • Will my drop foot resolve? If this is caused by a stroke does not typically resolve. If is due to a nerve injury it may recover but if not improved over a year is most likely permanent.
