Drop foot refers to the inability to lift the front part of one’s foot off the ground when walking, resulting in a scuffing or dragging of the foot or lifting the thigh (known as “steppage” gait).
This condition is also seen with reasons. Compressive etiologies are the most common cause of peroneal nerve palsies. These occur anywhere along the course of the nerve. Compression of the common peroneal nerve at the level of the fibular head is the most common site of entrapment.
