Have you heard of Neuroplasticity? It is extremely important to not only understand what it is, but also it's impact on YOU!
Neuroplasticity is the ability of your brain to create NEW pathways for a movement to occur! This means that whether you have NO movement, or little movement, your brain is able to create a new neural pathway from your brain to the muscle.

If you have foot drop/drop foot, have you ever wondered how you can improve your walking when your toes just.won't.lift? Here’s my answer :
Iff your ankle isn’t strong enough to lift your toes up when waking forward, try BENDING YOUR KNEE more! This can give you more lift in your leg so that your toes will have more space to clear.
Keep in mind this is easier said than done! It requires hamstring strength + flexibility! If you have spasticity or weakness that prevents you from bending your knee more, you should TRY IT ANYWAY!!
Some bending is better than NO bending + your brain will work to find a neural connection from your brain to your hamstrings when you repeat this exercise!
So... what do you think?! Does this seem doable? Too challenging?
