Dian Barnett says:

Hey guys. I've got foot drop/spasticity and I so appreciate your help but it's real hard to keep the toes from scraping the floor. Yes the hips comes into play and that's where a lot of weakness is.

John Goh says:

Your 3 exercises for healing foot drop are useless. I used all kinds of exercises including your methods and none had ever work. Wear a splint to lift your foot to walk is a better solution.

Connie Johnson says:

Had surgery for a nerve that was being squeezed in my leg. I see some improvement … I will try these exercises to hurry it along. The surgeon sees no reason for PT as I am seeing improvement and he feels I will walk normally within months. Thanks for the video.

Christopher DiBona says:

How long does it usually take in PT for foot drop to come back approximately? I have a large herniated disc at either L4 or L5. My PT guy says that he feels I need surgery because it’s been around a month with very little improvements. I have a very weak hip and and do the back knee that you mentioned. Is there a point where you feel that a person needs surgery? Ty

Dray-G? I can't listen to this.

Julian Marcus Esposito says:

Thank you guys.. I'm walking now after a pons stroke and your recommended exercises

Bruce Wharrie says:

Had foot drop for 10 years from MS. No problem cycling around Ireland, Scotland & Australia, but cross country skiing is very hard with no step turn and snowplough on only one side while "floppy' just edges and wobbles. Tried a seated leg curl at gym. Able to test leg strength in each leg – 18kg vs 38kg An objective measurement, so now will attempt to strengthen "floppy leg" with seated leg curls as a test and other single leg exercises.

Nor-Cal Scott says:

Tip: if you're talking about foot drop and you demonstrate an exercise it is HELPFUL to actually show the foot in action. Video barely shows the guys knee. Worst video ever.

D from Boston says:

Great video! I've been using a 2LB ankle weight on my for 3 days now and and I must thank you guys. For some reason my leg and foot muscles fire when walking allowing me to clear the ground safely, but man is my leg and foot sore! my question is, is the weight suppose to build strength in your leg and foot?

Molekileki I says:

I was playing soccer today bare foot and I was kicking the ball hard and stuff and when I got home I noticed my toe was dragging on the ground and I couldn't raise my right foot. Is this foot drop , obviously is but will it get better
This is the first time this has ever happened to me in my soccer career so to speak, I'm 17 btw

I can't believe how critical and petty some people are on these comments. Some of us are actually grateful for your videos AND for answers to questions.
