In brief: Neurologist/orthopod

A neurologist can help diagnose the cause of a "drop foot.
" for bracing or reconstructive surgical options see an orthopaedic foot/ankle specialist.

Physiatrist and neurologists encounter this condition frequently, and can perform the necessary testing to determine the cause.
It is usually wise, however, to first have your primary care physician evaluate it. This should be done immediately.
