Hai Doc. I have my Footdrop for almost 2 years, Do I have a chance to return it to normal? Does Posterior splint can manage to cure it?

I obtained a foot drop from a bad doctor doing a nerve block. It should of never been done. Splints and braces are not the answer. It's not a total drop but, anyone reading this. Go to Jones Hopkins Baltimore, there one of the most technologically hospital's out there for nerves. Start with the nerves then go for simple braces not braces, been there. A waste of money. Thinking about surgery but going to John Hopkins
