Foot drop - or drop foot as it's also known - is a rare condition that few people have any real knowledge or understanding of; save for sufferers, or those working in medicine.
Until I suffered a serious knee injury, which also permanently damaged a nerve, I too had never heard of it; and I am quite versed on medical conditions as I deal with medical law in my career.
The reason I wanted to write this blog was twofold - firstly, to raise awareness for those who are not in the know; secondly, to help others who are suffering with this life-altering condition. Both sufferers and sufferer's family - I welcome you to contact me.
