Foot Conditions A-Z

Drop Foot

Drop foot (also called “foot drop”) occurs when you can’t lift your foot upwards (dorsiflex) - i.e., with toes facing up toward your face - because of muscle weakness or neurological conditions. Drop foot has multiple underlying causes, and may be temporary or permanent. It may affect only one foot (unilateral) or both feet (bilateral).
