Re: Physical Therapy for Drop Foot?

Unfortunately since there was damage to the peroneal nerve you will most likely always have a drop foot. You should wear an AFO...ankle foot orthosis...to hold the foot up when you walk. Ask your doc or physical therapist about this device...it will improve your walking 100%.
