Before you watch this, please watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMcazVftpaA&t=35s. This is a follow up video.

This video is an intro (ok, maybe more of a teaser (-: ) for my next video which will dive deep into weight-bearing activities to reduce post-stroke spasticity. I hope this will help clear up some confusion and help you understand what is going on when your body seems to have a mind of its own.

Dineen Cottrell says:

So I have a traumatic brain injury for 4 1/2 years. I am suffering with terrible balance & unsteady walking. But I also have some form of foot drop that is for the most part localized in my big toe on my left foot. I call it a lazy toe. It is weaker in my left ankle too. This is causing falls regularly from my big toe getting caught on things with my shoes off. I haven’t gotten much help from the therapists & doctors on this particular issue. I have a very long list of other problems that have been a focus. Is it spasticity?

ron padlo says:

For the plethora of stroke victims out there we all know that you do get it, to borrow your phrase! You are an exceptional young Lady and therapist! Now for those of us that utilize an afo do yo have a video that shows the difference and the advantages and disadvantages of wearing one. Alo,if you haven’t already addressed cloneness could you please do so? Kind Christian regards Ron Padlo
