We Treat Foot Drop Without Surgery In Dublin Ireland 

Foot Drop? Sounds like foot-stomping or foot sliding, doesn’t it?

But foot drop is actually a condition that causes difficulty in lifting the foot off the ground. It could be caused by injury to nerves in the spine or in the lower leg, which may lead to other symptoms such as loss of feeling and muscle weakness.

The muscles that lift your foot are affected because they become weaker than those on the opposite side of your body. This can make walking difficult and can also cause pain when you try to put weight on it! Foot drop treatment options vary depending on your specific needs; Dublin Physio & Chiropractic provides physiotherapy treatments for foot drop.

What Causes A Foot Drop?

While foot drop is usually the result of damage to muscles, nerves, or tendons in your foot and ankle area, it can also be caused by other health problems.

Neurological disorders like a traumatic brain injury, stroke, or multiple sclerosis (MS) may cause foot drop symptoms because they affect nerve signals controlling muscle movement.

These conditions are sometimes called ‘central’ causes of foot drop because foot drop isn’t the result of problems in your actual foot or ankle.
