Because foot drop can increase your risk of tripping and falling, you might want to take these precautions around your house:

  • Keep all floors clear of clutter.
  • Avoid the use of throw rugs.
  • Relocate electrical cords away from walkways.
  • Make sure rooms and stairways are well lit.
  • Place fluorescent tape on the top and bottom steps of stairways.
