In the past year and a half I have fallen several times and it is always because I stumble and pitch with my right foot I have gotten a finger broke from falling and stitches in my face and badly bruised knees and legs.
I would love to know if there is something I can do besides making myself concious about picking up my foot because it is making me limp and my back hurts from the strain.

Thank you kindly,

If you have trouble raising your foot at the ankle, have you been correctly diagnosed? Have you had an MRI or EMG? A spine specialist must determine the cause of drop foot before formulating a treatment plan.
