Drop Foot and MS

Updated on March 26, 2018

Avoiding falls with drop foot can be challenging. It’s hard to walk or stay balanced at home, the office, or in public places when one foot doesn’t work properly. “I fell into a ladies’ chair and her teenager gave me the meanest look,” said one MyMSTeam member about an embarrassing spill at a restaurant. It’s times like these that you need support from others living — even thriving — with MS mobility issues.

On MyMSTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with multiple sclerosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Drop foot is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

when I lived on the farm I put a strap around my ankle so I could lift my foot to walk thru the grass and uneven grounds.
