advice for foot drop?
Hello everyone i would like to share with you about my story. I had a bad accident july 2012 on a motorcycle, i broke my hip,pinched sciatic nerve,broken ribs,Blood transfusion,TBI, after i was left with all of these broken bones my left foot was left with foot drop lots of pain stayed in bed almost a year learned to walk again from walker to crutches to hoping to now finally being able to walk until now i used about everything you can think of to get rid of the pain. But still no pain relief after going through a hard time everyday for about 2 years i started.   To take vitamins and use croc shoes with removable soal for my AFO foot brace they were an instant relief i mountain bike all the time since my foot didnt have dorsiflection i forced it to i still have a little lag but im still coming along i am writing this to tell you to keep your faith and to never give up this happened for a reason i do not know why i am still finding out with time. This has helped me become such a strong man mentally and physically i have advice for people with foot drop lets keep the movement going people
God bless

Thanks for your inspirational story!  My journey began in April 2016 with a foot injury leading to back pain leading to a diagnosis of foot drop.  Have been very depressed b/c of the lifestyle change.  I used to walk 15,000+ steps a day and now close to nothing b/c of fear of falling.  The doctor prescribed a full ankle AFO for me but I'm hesitant to try it b/c of the bulkiness and cost and that it might make me "settle" for my current condition.  I've heard that biking is a great exercise for foot drop.  The docs want to do spinal fusion surgery but I don't have anything that's broken just typical degenerative aging stuff.  I've heard surgery recovery is a nightmare and it doesn't guarantee a "fix" for foot drop.  I've had some improvement with a chiropractor I'm seeing who practices acupuncture.  If you've had any other revelations about foot drop, please share.  Thank you!
