“I had a stroke last year and now I have drop foot and my toes drag. What can I do to stop tripping?”
There are many bracing options that will help to support your foot to prevent the toes from dragging and make it easier to achieve a more normal gait pattern. Your first step would be to discuss your concerns with your doctor and get a detailed prescription. Next, call our office to make an appointment to see one of our Certified Orthotists who will perform a thorough assessment to determine your needs and discuss the bracing options with you. There are many options available; however, not all may be suitable for you. There is often government funding available for this type of orthotic treatment, and your private insurance plan may also cover some of the costs.
