AFO brace for foot drop can help with foot drop because they don’t require the brain to use the neural pathways needed to lift the toes. This unused neural pathway eventually becomes weaker. This means that the person with foot drop will likely lose ankle mobility over time. Retraining the muscles and neural pathways will help maximize recovery and help a person return to their former mobility. This process requires the use of neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to rewire itself through repetitive practice.
