ABSTRACT

Objectives : Foot drop is taken by several causes. External or internal pressures on peripheral nerves may result in common peroneal neuropathy(CPN). CPN is a major cause for foot drop. But few cases of foot drop caused by CPN have been reported. Especially case of sensory disoder`s improvement by themographic picture is very few. We report three patients with foot drop. Methods : There are three patients diagnosed by CPN. We diagnosed them with nerve conduction studies(NCS) and electromyography(EMG). We treated them conservative maneuver as to oriental medical method. And we measured range of movement of ankle joint, distance of from a big toe to the ground and thermographic picture of both leg. Results : After being treated by our methods, Patients` VAS(Visual Analogue Scale), ROM(Range of Motion) and thermographic picture of both leg were improved in cases. Conclusions : Foot drop caused by CPN is improved by conservative maneuver as to oriental medical method.
