Heel Pain

Extremity-foot
We worry about plantar fasciitis, but you might need to have this evaluated by your primary care doctor who might refer you to a physical therapist to teach stretching exercises. Try a heating pad and some GENTLE anti-inflammatory meds until you can see your doctor

Could I have torn ant tib tendon? Ultrasound burn at PT caused ant tib tenosynovitis & chiro perform forced flexion. At rest, footdrop & arch folding.

May be tendon tear

Mri
Based on the history you provided you may have sustained a tendon injury. An examination by a foot and ankle specialist is in order with an MRI examination likely to be ordered. The anterior tibial tendon is a major dorsiflexor of the foot. Without it functioning properly you would likely suffer a foot drop. There are other causes of foot drop and these should be ruled out.

What is the definition or description of: Footdrop?

See below

What can i do to cure a footdrop?

Braces
Depends on the etiology of the footdrop. May just require time. It is important to prevent contractures with a brace.

Dr. Robert Leland answered:

Anyone ever have footdrop fixed?

Tendon transfers

Braces
Tendon transfer surgeries are an option to restore dorsiflexion in appropriate patients who are not tolerating brace wear. This can provide a very good outcome. Discuss options with an Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle specialist

Hemiarthroplasty - combined with footdrop. anyone experienced this?

May be nerve damage

Electromyography
Even the most carefully done orthopedic procedure can result in nerve impingement, and if the sciatic nerve is impinged a foot drop can result. A neurological evaluation (possibly including an nerve conduction study or electromyography) can help determine if this is the case, and guide further treatment.

Dr. Robert Leland answered:

What is new for people with footdrop?

Muscle stim brace

Ankle
dropfoot has various causes but results from the muscles that dorsiflex the ankle (primarily tibialis anterior) not functioning. This usually is caused by a nerve dysfuntion. In some cases it is reversible if the nerve can recover. Therapy, brace and surgery (tendon transfers) options exist. While most treatments aren't "new" a newer muscle stimulator can be used instead of a brace in some patient
