What is Foot Drop?
“Foot drop” (or weakness of the foot levator) refers to a pathology that prevents people with this condition from properly lifting one of their feet and their toes as they walk.
The balance, mobility and trust of the affected people are affected. The foot points down, the toes drag and scratch the ground.
Thus, irregular soil or a simple carpet can become a real obstacle and lead to a fall.
To compensate for this imbalance, patients often make the habit of compensating by raising their hips to the affected side or by raising their feet higher thanks to the mobility of their pelvis or torso.
Some even tend to walk on the outside of their feet.
Walking then requires a lot of effort and concentration and consequently becomes, over time, uncomfortable and exhausting, generating pain in the pelvis and back.
