Foot Drop Remedies

I want to share this very simple exercise that helped me regain my ankle movement.I have to say that prior to doing this, I had no ankle movement at all which hindered me from walking with ease and proper posture. I hope you find this helpful.

Ankle exercise for foot drop:

1. Sit down on a chair with a back rest. Your body must be at 90 degree angle to your lap.

2. Try to raise your affected leg but stop it with your working hand from going up.(Maintain the 90 degree posture with bended knee while doing this.)Your must see your foot pointing upward.

3.Make as many repetitions as you can every day.
* If your leg straightens as you try to raise it, you can get someone to hold it for you.
*If you are not strong enough to hold your leg down on your own, you can ask for assistance.
I have proven this exercise to be effective in activating my ankle movement but it could be too strenuous to others so I strongly recommend that you get an advise from your physician if you are strong enough already to do it.

For those of you who can’t do the above exercise just yet, I have this  foot drop assist (which by the way was also recommended by my uncle) that I find very helpful with my walking. I have regained my ankle movement but it is not yet strong enough so I bought it and I think it is absolutely brilliant. It was a bit dear but affordable and really efficient. It looks like this:
