Foot drop is not a condition by itself. It is a symptom of another disorder. Foot drop can be caused by a number of health conditions.

The most common cause of foot drop is peroneal nerve injury.  The peroneal nerve is a branch of the sciatic nerve. It supplies movement and sensation to the lower leg, foot, and toes.

Conditions that affect the nerves and muscles in the body can lead to foot drop. They include:

  • Peripheral neuropathy.
  • Diabetes is the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy
  • Muscular dystrophy, a group of disorders that cause muscle weakness and loss of muscle tissue.
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is an inherited disorder that affects the peripheral nerves
  • Polio is caused by a virus, and can cause muscle weakness and paralysis

Brain and spinal cord disorders can cause muscle weakness and paralysis and include:

  • Stroke
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Multiple sclerosis

Take a look at the treatment products the Physio Store offers to help with  this condition.
