bunion repair Stress Neuropathy Weakness Feet Foot Nerve damage Motor Muscle Charcot Marie Tooth


Usually seen in diabetics who have reduced sensation in their feet, a motor neuropathy leads to weakness of intrinsic muscles of the foot. Repetative stress on the foot results in bones becoming misplaced and causing deformity

Possible deformity

Any condition causing numbness to your feet can cause a charcot foot. As a result of the numbness, daily use of the foot, and other physiologic changes, some of the bones in your feet begin to break down. The bones then coalesce which possibly results in a bony deformity.

Foot Drop Shoes

The only shoe type I have ever found useless for some of my patients with drop foot is some stable heel. Since it is hard to lift your foot past ankle neutral, the heel makes it easier to move from heel lift to propulsion. For a guy, probably cowboy boots would be the best, or dansko clog type shoes.

Regardless of the cause of your foot drop, (and there are many causes), you can help yourself with bracing. Bracing is an important first step to increase your safety when walking. There are also newer spring loaded braces and nerve stimulators that can be very helpful for foot drop. Ask your doctor for a referral to a physiatrist, aka a rehab doctor. good luck

Where there is

nerve damage, most often to the peroneal nerve, sometimes to part of the sciatic nerve that will branch to become the peroneal nerve. There is then weakness to the dorsiflexors of the foot, which makes it difficult to keep your foot up in dorsiflexion.

Caused by prolonged exposure of the feet to damp, unsanitary, and cold conditions. Affected feet may become numb, affected by erythrosis (turning red) or cyanosis (turning blue) as a result of poor vascular supply, and feet may begin to have a decaying odor due to the possibility of the early stages of gangrene. As the condition worsens, feet may also begin to swell and blister (jungle rot).

1 Doctor agrees
 Feet Foot

Slow foot reflex

suggests possible nerve compression in lumbar or sacral spine, which could result from bulging/ruptured disc, bone spur compressing spinal cord or nerve root, or spinal stenosis. Suggest seeing orthopedic or neurosurgeon for evaluation, tests (including MRI), options for treatment. If U have foot drop or similar problems, do not delay. Sooner the treatment, less damage.
