Did you have an mri for the dr to look at? did you have pain anywhere? Numbness, tingling? The touch your toes tests your flexibility and if you have disc issues may get nerve pain when you bend. The stand on you toes and heals tests the muscle strength which can be weakened by a pinched nerve or muscle in your back. I had a foot drop before one of my surgeries, I could not walk on my toes or heels or lift my toes up against gravity. If you are sitting and extend your legs your back is in a stressed position and may send a shooting pain down your leg up your back or butt. These are standard tests. During several of my visits to doctors at different times I have failed these tests due to a herniated disc in my lumbar region.
Hope this helps
