Hi everyone!
When we made this video at the start of MS Workouts, we had no idea we'd get so many views or that MS Workouts would get as big as it has. We'd like to take this opportunity to address some frequently asked questions regarding these foot drop exercises:

1). What if I can't lift my toes or foot up?
That's okay, perform the exercise in the range-of-motion that is available to you. Even if you don't see any movement, try to consciously flex and actively push the foot to the best of your ability. Starting somewhere is better than not starting at all.

2). What if I fully exhaust the muscles after just 15 seconds (I wasn't even using a resistance band)?
That's actually a good thing. In strength training, "failure = success". The goal is to overload the targeted muscles. You did that. So the advice would be to keep rocking! Attempt to push a little further each time you perform the exercise.

3). The Heel Raise (2nd exercise) doesn't address foot drop, why is it in this video?
This video, as well as our Foot Drop Series in our membership program, follows a comprehensive approach toward recovering strength and mobility. We not only want to target the muscles directly attributing to the symptom, but also the ones that are indirectly involved as well. In this case, we are not just focusing solely on the anterior tibialis. Although it is the main focus of our foot drop exercises, we don't want to ignore other muscles of the lower limb that are used while walking, that contribute to better gait, and that help you better deal with having foot drop in the first place. Muscles work together during locomotion.

Thank you everyone for your questions, comments, and support! We are so thrilled to be able to help each and every one of you during your journey to recovering strength. If you're interested in more free exercises, sign up for the 7-Day Strength Camp at http://www.msworkouts.com/strengthcamp.

Hi Jeff, I have MS diagnosis also. My right leg has spasticity, foot drop, weak ankle and a hyperextended knee. How would I be able to achieve some of these exercises. I use to be in track and field so not running for the past ten years is difficult. Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

constance muellenbach says:

Just found your channel. I have
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and suffer from severe right foot drop after a failed spinal fusion that caused the CRPS. I am wearing an AFO brace and I now have muscle atrophy in my right calf. Going to start doing the exercises. No one has been able to help me with foot drop and doctor said it is permanent. I hope the exercises can help me strengthen my right li6wer leg and improve my walking.
