Re: foot drop, AFO and shortened heel cord
It sounds like I have a somewhat similar problem, but I don't fall.
I have been going to Dr. Hauser in Chicago. It's worth the drive as he knows the human body!
He does prolotherapy and injections on weak ankles. They strengthen joints & ligaments to hold you up by injecting a proliferant solution into the ankle joints and wherever your having issues. He's an amazing doctor! I've been to everyone and he's the best!
Don't despair. Go to www.caringmedical.com and you can locate one in your area hopefully if Chicago is out of the question.
Hope that helps.
