Hi Annie, Yes, me falling gracefully was very sarcastic. I fell over backwards and my foot somehow got under me and I fractured my ankle in two places. The only way I can explain dropfoot is what happened to me. One day I was walking (using my walker) and my foot just bent under and threw me backwards. I can move feet sideways but not up at all from the ankle, also my big toes wont move either. AFO’s are the devices that physical therapy get, they are plastic-like forms that fit to your leg and down under you foot. When walking, they allow a normal gait of heel first steps. Hope I helped, anymore questions, just ask. Regina
