While joint pain remains one of the most commonly treated symptoms at Remedy Pain Solutions, many patients are not aware how common joint pain is within the spine itself.
Foot drop, also known as drop foot or dropped foot, refers to a weakening of the muscles that allow one to flex the ankle and toes, causing the individual to drag the front of the foot while walking and to compensate for this by bending the knee to lift the foot.
An easy way to test for foot drop is to try to walk on the heels. If this is difficult, drop foot may be present.
While foot drop is a neuromuscular disorder that affects the nerves and muscles, it is not actually a disease in itself but rather a symptom of some other medical problem, possibly by a condition in the low back.
