Hi everyone!
When we made this video at the start of MS Workouts, we had no idea we'd get so many views or that MS Workouts would get as big as it has. We'd like to take this opportunity to address some frequently asked questions regarding these foot drop exercises:

1). What if I can't lift my toes or foot up?
That's okay, perform the exercise in the range-of-motion that is available to you. Even if you don't see any movement, try to consciously flex and actively push the foot to the best of your ability. Starting somewhere is better than not starting at all.

2). What if I fully exhaust the muscles after just 15 seconds (I wasn't even using a resistance band)?
That's actually a good thing. In strength training, "failure = success". The goal is to overload the targeted muscles. You did that. So the advice would be to keep rocking! Attempt to push a little further each time you perform the exercise.

3). The Heel Raise (2nd exercise) doesn't address foot drop, why is it in this video?
This video, as well as our Foot Drop Series in our membership program, follows a comprehensive approach toward recovering strength and mobility. We not only want to target the muscles directly attributing to the symptom, but also the ones that are indirectly involved as well. In this case, we are not just focusing solely on the anterior tibialis. Although it is the main focus of our foot drop exercises, we don't want to ignore other muscles of the lower limb that are used while walking, that contribute to better gait, and that help you better deal with having foot drop in the first place. Muscles work together during locomotion.

Thank you everyone for your questions, comments, and support! We are so thrilled to be able to help each and every one of you during your journey to recovering strength. If you're interested in more free exercises, sign up for the 7-Day Strength Camp at http://www.msworkouts.com/strengthcamp.

Techno Games says:

I just discovered that I have foot drop after a week . I just suddenly couldn't move my toes or my foot up I can bend them downwards but no way upwards. And I have slight numbness on the outter skin . I can still feel my foot . Is this really a nerve damge ? As it just happened to me suddenly last week and I haven't damaged my leg or so . And I can't see a doctor because of the Corona Viruse quarantine. Any explanation guys ? 🙁

Naveen Ahmad says:

Foot drop is a remnant of Central NERVOUS system damage,,,Functional anatomy is affected at that level

Akshat Jaiswal says:

hi i'm suffering from foot drop. can you just tell how long will it take to get recovered ?

John Goh says:

I am 83 years old and my right footdrop is more than 40 years old I could not even more any toe so the exercise ankle Inversion is impossible to do.

yaxxee says:

Hi Jeff, I love your kind, positive attitude and how motivating you are. It's really helpful to those of us that are scared/depressed/frustrated by our symptoms. I'm pre-diagnosis with suspected Primary Progressive MS. I've had a slow decline for 9 years and getting closer to disability, so I'm doing lots of these exercises while I still have my mobility. I've read some good success stories where building strength helps managing symptoms, and may even mean further years of mobility. I hope it also brings benefits to those that are in later stages of the disease.

I'M 19 I have foot drop and its sucks

Otay says:
