foot drop

George Bartley

Hello, my name is George Bartley. I am a licensed master level social

worker .. finishing graduate school this past May. My special areas of

interest are re-hab (psychological and physical), recovery from

addictions, hypnosis and imagery, relaxation techniques, and the


(to the point..) In my own rehabilitation I have been trying to

find “custom footwear/boots” that either conceal a spring wire brace or

a plastic insert that can be used wearing cowboy boots. Both of my legs

have foot drop. I have had this condition since 1982 .. and I have only

worn cowboy boots since that time…because they allow my heal to hit

the ground first, and elevate my toes some too. The trouble is that as

the boots get old and wear out…..the toe elevation disapears. Then I

have to buy a new pair or try different ways of fixing the old boots

that will once again have the desired effect.

I feel like I am at a dead end hear because the doctors I have seen

only know about the standard spring-wire brace or the plastic insert.

I hope someone on this list can help or give me some ideas on how

to customize boots for toe elevation and general support for the rest of

the ankle, etc.

Thank you very much,

George S. Bartley, LMSW
