Anterior tibialis exercises
I developed a moderate foot drop following lubar fusion surgery last June. The surgeon didn't know why, but we do know that there was no tearing or cutting of the L5 -- maybe some bruising or something that caused mild axonal damage. Well, according to my EMG/nerve conduction studies, things are getting better, but the anterior tibialis (in my left foot and leg) is relatively weak from the lack of use due to the nerve damage. Since it is starting to receive signals again, I'm looking for some exercises that target that area that I can do to wear that sucker out and get it in shape so I can jog/run again.
I'd appreciate any suggestions you have. The doctor says the fusion is just about complete, so I am cleared to do most anything. I have access to a decent gym, but would really like some exercises that don't require equipment, though I do want some info in that area as well.
Is there anyone who can help me run again? You really don't know what you've got until it is taken from you. Thanks again!
