Foot Drop is when you are not able to lift the front part of your foot upwards. This can present with problems of dragging your toes during walking and can increase the possibility of falling. This inability to lift the front of the foot is caused by weakness or a paralysis of the muscles which function to lift the foot. There are different causes for drop foot and the cause must be determined so the proper treatment can be started.
If you are experiencing a weakness in the ability to lift the front of your foot, come in for an evaluation and determine the best form of treatment. Call the office of Palm Desert Podiatrist, Dr. Harvey Danciger at 760-560-0108, or request an appointment online.
