In brief: Difficult

Drop foot from nerve dysfunction is difficult to treat with pt as it's impossible to strengthen muscles that aren't receiving input.
If it is a partial foot drop or the nerve is resolving, strengthening the muscles and secondary dorsiflexors with therapy can be very helpful. Brace and surgery options also exist.
