Foot Drop

There are a range of symptoms associated with foot drop which will depend on how severe it is. These include: difficulty in lifting the front part of the foot, dragging the foot on the floor when walking, increased bending of the hip and knee when swinging the leg through when walking (called a high stepping gait), a “slapping” of the foot after it first contacts the floor (called foot-slap), pain, weakness or numbness in the foot.
