No strength in left heel and toes ie cannot support weight

by David Mead
(Nairobi Kenya)

I cannot support my weight on the left heel or toes, so cannot stride out. I have had lower back fusion. Are there any exercises to assist?

Hello David,
Everybody with a lower back problem, and especially after surgery, should be doing some gentle lower back exercises every morning before getting out of bed. Find them in the navigation bar at Chiropractic Help.

But I doubt if they will fix that paresis in your foot; was it there before the surgery? You'll have to talk to the surgeon about it.
