Back in 2004 & 2005 my PT tried this on me, sure it would work. There was absolutely no movement below my knees & she seemed very surprised. It was because the nerves were so badly damaged that they were not sending messages for the muscles to contract. Your PT is wrong, it is the nerves that make the muscles move/work; if the nerves are damaged, there will be no message sent to the muscles. That is why I still need to wear AFOs.
