Night Fall Foot Orthosis is specially designed to elevate the foot and position the foot at a 90-degree angle to enable you to control the ankle and metatarsal. It lengthens the Achilles tendon and reduces ankle inflammation and pain.
What is foot drop and how does it happen?
Foot drop is muscle weakness or muscle paralysis in the foot and ankle, which makes the patient unable to move and unable to control the foot or instep, and causes difficulty in free movement and walking. The fall of the foot may occur as a result of nerve damage, tendon rupture, or muscle weakness.
Braces and foot drop splints are the best in the treatment of foot drop as they control the movement of the ankle and metatarsal.
If a nerve injury occurs, a fall occurs in the foot, and the nerve injury occurs by constantly pressing a nerve in the leg, also called the peroneal nerve.
Falling foot may also occur as a result of a herniated disc in the back vertebrae until contact with the spinal cord occurs.
If the injury is strong and cannot move, physiotherapy or surgical intervention may be required.
