Product Description and Details

VISSCO Foot Drop Splint Right Or Left 0730An Ankle-Foot-Orthosis (AFO) can be used to keep the dropped foot off the ground while walking if the patient has the functional use of their muscles, thus creating a more even and normal gait. A drop foot splint, are often the first line of foot drop treatment by providing stabilization of the ankle and the foot.
A brace for drop foot is used to keep the ankle at 90 degrees and prevent the foot from dropping towards the ground. In turn, the drop foot brace typically makes it much easier for the patient to walk and more difficult for him or her to trip at the toes as a result of the dropped foot. The most common type of foot drop brace is made of polypropylene and is inserted into a shoe.The splint has a rigid support frame with removable straps to hold the splint in position. It is provided with socks.

Product Features Benefits Advantages

When learning about foot drop, it should be reiterated that it is a symptom of an underlying condition. Generally speaking, foot drop causes may include:

  • Muscle damage
  • Skeletal or anatomical abnormalities affecting the foot
  • Nerve damage

Common Foot Drop Causes

Specific causes of foot drop that should be considered may include:

  • A lower back condition (see below for more detail)
  • A stroke or tumor
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Motor Neuron disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Adverse reactions to drugs or alcohol
  • An injury to the foot or lower leg

How the Lower Back Causes Drop Foot
There are a number of conditions in the lower back that put pressure on the nerve that leads to the peroneal nerve in the lower leg, which innervates the muscles that allow the foot to flex up.When compromised, peroneal nerve damage may occur and prompt foot drop as a result of the following lower back problems:

Lumbar herniated disc. While there are many causes of foot drop, one of the most common cause tends to be a herniated disc in the lower back (lumbar spine) that is putting pressure on the nerve that runs down the leg and into the foot. Putting pressure on the weakest spot of the disc (located right under the nerve root), a herniated disc may prompt pain to nerves beyond the sciatic nerve (including the peroneal nerve) that is referred to the leg and foot. More specifically, this pain will usually run below the knee and to the foot, with the foot pain accompanied with numbness.
Spinal stenosis. Occurring gradually over time and usually in elderly patients, spinal stenosis occurs when the spinal nerve roots are compressed and choked as a result of a number of potential factors, most commonly enlarged facet joints (e.g. from osteoarthritis). With lumbar spinal stenosis, nerve compression can produce symptoms of pain, especially with activities involving standing and walking, and possibly foot drop.
Spondylolisthesis. Prompting an unstable and compromised spine segment as a result of a vertebra slipping forward over a lower vertebra, spondylolisthesis may result in a pinched nerve in the lower back.
Bone fractures or lacerations. A fracture to a vertebra in the lower back, such as from osteoporosis, can cause stress and irritation to related nerves, leading to referred pain in the foot and possibly foot drop. For anyone with who is diagnosed with or at risk for osteoporosis, a vertebral fracture should be considered as a possible cause of foot drop.
