Foot Drop

Treatments for Foot Drop

Treatment options for foot drop will depend on the cause of the foot drop. Common treatments include lightweight braces and splints to support the foot, physical therapy to strengthen the muscles and maintain joint motion, and nerve stimulation therapy to electrically stimulate the peroneal nerve. In cases of permanent loss of motion, surgery to fuse the foot and ankle joint or transfer tendons from stronger leg muscles may be used.
