[QUOTE=jiasent;3373557]Thank you for the advice: tendon transfer should be the last resort.

I have started PT with focus on recovering the peroneal nerve. It basically involves moving the toes/foot upwards passively and building the muscle strength. I am also given electric stimulations.

I am also waiting to see a nurosurgeon in two weeks and possibly will have a MRI on the nerve to understand how bad/good the nerve is. I will post results. Jiasent[/QUOTE]


I wish you all the best of luck.

I have been monitoring various message boards about foot drop because my four year old daughter has it due to an unexplained injury. She had nerve surgery one and a half years ago and has shown questionable improvement.

We also do not want to have to resort to tendon transfer, especially because of her age.

I'm curious about the peroneal nerve therapy you are doing. May I ask you to be more specific? Did you find a therapist who understands this problem and has some specific exercises to do? We have had mixed luck with PT in our own town. We did find an out of town therapist who uses biofeedback and it involves, maybe similar to your method, trying to exercise the other muscles in the leg

Also, we do threshold electrical stimulation at night. Some still call it an experimental therapy but it has been shown to possibly stop muscle atrophy.

Best of luck to you.
