Do your toes drag on the floor when you walk? Do you have a hard time lifting your foot up from the ankle? Is it nearly impossible to move your foot from side to side? You might have drop foot, also commonly called foot drop.

Drop foot often only affects one foot, and usually happens because a nerve in the leg is being “crushed” or compressed. Because the nerve is being compressed, it loses function, and can cause a variety of accompanying problems, including drop foot.

People with diabetes are at higher risk for nerve compression problems and drop foot. Drop foot can also appear after hip or knee replacement surgery.
